HOUSTON A local group got a different view of the city as they rappelled down the 29-story Four Seasons Hotel Saturday in downtown as part of the Over the Edge fundraiser.

KHOU 11 Sports Anchor Matt Musil was one of the brave 85 people to rope and rappel down the historic building located at 1300 Lamar St. The event is meant to raise funds for the Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA and its Partners Campaign.

It s for our annual partners campaign, so it s raising money for the people in our community, the kids who may not be able to afford the summer day camp programs and after school programs and things like that, Sarah Wilson, the event organizer, said. All the money that we got from this event from 85 people repelling down the 29 story Four Season Hotel goes to benefit the Tellepsen Downtown YMCA.
