Rappel for charity

A 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 15 story Orlando Regional Medical Center.

50 people did it this year, raising about $100,000.

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.
