Gov. John Hickenlooper rappelled down a skyscraper in Denver
Gov. John Hickenlooper exited a building from a great height today, with only a rope and a harness to prevent him from descending very quickly to the bottom.
The skyscraper in question was at 1600 Glenarm Place. This was for a charitable fundraiser known as Over the Edge to benefit the Cancer League of Colorado.
That’s a long way down
The “after” shot:
The Cancer League has no paid staff. The money raised goes to cancer research and patient services.
Each participant raises $1,000 to descend the building.
The “before” shots:
