On Thursday and Friday people will be rappelling from the Omni Hotel in downtown Jacksonville for the "Over The Edge" fundraiser.
In fact, Action News Jax anchor Phil Amato will be hanging from the ropes at 1:30 P.M. Thursday as part of the fundraiser.
I’m ready to strap in and rappel down the Omni. Layering up since temps are going to be only in the 50’s this afternoon. https://t.co/PMzxkpi7rH— Phil Amato (@PhilAmatoANjax) December 6, 2018
Back in 2015, Action News Jax's Letisha Bereola took the same challenge and zipped down the line with blustering speed. Amato hopes to be as fast as she was.
The Boy Scouts of America North Florida Council hopes to raise $30,000. Everyone who rappels raises money for the privilege.
