A wild charity event in Orlando, Florida, involved people rappelling down the side of a hospital to raise money for veterans.
Anyone who raised $1,000 or more for the Heart of Florida United Way was given permission to work their way down the side of the Orlando Regional Medical Center — all 15 stories of it.
Amazingly, 50 people did it this year, raising about $100,000.
It was a fun adventure for those dangling by ropes from the roof of the building. And, it raised awareness for the needs of veterans in the area.
Thanks to the fundraising — and bravery — of the participants, the $100,000 they raised will help veterans with services like housing, financial aid assistance and job readiness.
