Thrill-seekers to rappel down Raleigh skyscraper

Posted October 3, 2012

The Wells Fargo Capitol Center in downtown Raleigh will be crawling with people this Saturday – on the outside. Over The Edge allows people who raise $1,000 for Special Olympics North Carolina to rappel down the side of the skyscraper, truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

This year Durham Bulls mascot Wool E. Bull and WRAL-TV Meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner will make their way down the side of the building. Everyone is invited to come out and watch this fun (or crazy) event.

As a little preview, you can watch WRAL's Mandy Mitchell and Ken Smith participate in Over The Edge in 2011 and 2010.
