This week on Helping Hand it’s Special Olympics Hawaii and their Over the Edge fundraiser October 27th. Participants rappel off the side of the 40-story Waikiki Hyatt Regency to raise funds and awareness for their support of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence speaks with Tracey Bender, Special Olympics Hawaii Director of Development.
Helping Hand is a weekly feature on HPR1 stations each Friday, and here in our online Helping Hand directory. Each week on All Things Considered, we use Helping Hand to put the spotlight an organization, topic or event that offers assistance to people with disabilities and people and animals who are among the most vulnerable.
