MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — National Youth Recovery Foundation is offering people the chance to go over the edge — literally — to raise money for youth in recovery from addiction.

Friday morning, anyone who wants to fundraise at least $750 can rappel down 24 stories of the Hyatt Regency hotel in Minneapolis.

All being daredevils, the WCCO This Morning team took the challenge on Thursday as a team. You can see the results of their trial runs in the video above.

The National Youth Recovery Foundation works to help young people between the ages of 15 and 30 recover from drugs and alcohol.
