CBS 7 News
MIDLAND, TX-Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be Spiderman and hang from buildings?
Well now you can.
This Wednesday is the third annual "Over the Edge" fundraiser at Midland Memorial Hospital.
Participants will rappel down the side of a nine-story building at the hospital.
The event raises money for the more than 6,500 scouts here in West Texas.
"Many of the children that benefit from the money we raise are those who would not be able to help themselves. We actually bring the program to them, and we give them opportunities of course to come out to camp, and experience the outdoors which they may never of had a chance to do otherwise," said Aaron Bedell, District Director for Boy Scouts of America.
MISD Superintendent Dr. Ryder Warren is expected to go over the edge this year, and anyone can come out and watch.
Participants must weigh between 110 pounds to 300 pounds, and the cost is $1200 per person or $1500 to make your boss go over.
Donations will be accepted the day of the event.
