Today - a brave few chose to rappel 230 feet down the Highline Apartment building at 24th and Dodge through the Over the Edge event.

Battling the stomach dropping heights, those who chose to rappel down the building raised money for kids through the Greater Omaha Youth for Christ Organization. 

Each person who rappelled has to pledge a minimum of a thousand dollars.

Familiar faces such as U.S Congressman Don Bacon and U.S Senator Ben Sasse  both rappelled.

This weekend's goal was to raise $230,000 dollars.
