Former TAUC President and founder of Forest City Erectors Jim Mirgliotta recently went to great lengths (and heights) for a good cause — by rapelling down a 22-story building in downtown Cleveland!
On July 2, Jim participated in “Over the Edge for Hattie Larlham,” a fundraising event for the Cleveland nonprofit that helps children and adults with developmental disabilities. But this wasn’t any ordinary fundraiser: Jim and other participants rappelled down the Westin hotel in downtown Cleveland (see photos at right)!
We’re pleased to report that not only did Jim make it to the ground in one piece, he was also the event’s top fundraiser, bringing in more than $11,000 in pledges!
Hattie Larlham is a nonprofit organization that provides residential, medical, vocational and recreational services to 1,500 children and adults with developmental disabilities in Northeast Ohio. The organization provides services to 130 children and young adults at the Hattie Larlham Center for Children with Disabilities in Mantua, Ohio, and to adults at community-based homes throughout Ohio. Please visit www.hattielarlham.org to learn more about the work that they do.
Congratulations to Jim, Hattie Larlham and all of the “Over the Edge” participants!
