Fundraiser Dare: Rappel Down Minnesota Skyscraper
Here's a good deed you can do for the Boy Scouts of America - if you're not faint of heart.
As a fundraiser, the group's Northern Star Council is recruiting a few courageous souls to rappel 300 feet down the side of one of St. Paul's tallest buildings.
The Double Dog Dare Off-the-Wall Challenge is Sept. 7. Participants will rappel 22 stories down the Ecolab Corporate Center building.
Participants must be at least 16 years old, weigh 110 to 300 pounds and raise $1,000 for the Boy Scouts. A St. Paul Pioneer Press report says organizers are hoping for at least 80 participants.
The Northern Star Council serves more than 75,000 people in 21 counties across central Minnesota and four counties in western Wisconsin.
