We journeyed to the 19th floor of the Four Seasons Lumiere Place in downtown St. Louis. Then we climbed another two stories to the roof putting us 21 floors above the city, 289 ft. to be exact.

"You can expect to see the view of a lifetime and the chance to write something off your bucket list," said James Moran, Over the Edge Committee.

Close to 100 people are going over the edge today. They each raised $1000 for charity.

"The money goes all to Special Olympics Missouri. We have 17,000 athletes in the state that get to have free sports competition and training."

The money raised from this event helps fund programs for nearly 8,000 Special Olympics athletes in metro St. Louis.

"I think it's just an opportunity that you'd never have anywhere else and then you add the feature of being able to support the athletes of Special Olympics Missouri I don't think you can beat it," said Moran.

If you have $1000 you can head over to the Four Seasons Hotel until 5pm today to rappel down the building. The money goes to Special Olympics Missouri. You'll have another chance to go over the edge October 12 in Jefferson City and of course there's always next year. For more information visit www.somo.org
