People forgot their fear of heights for a good cause, going over the edge at the Seneca Niagara Hotel and Casino.

The 4th annual event allows people to raise money for the Special Olympics and then rappel off of the 27 story building.

Some of the athletes descending from the sky today had disabilities, but they didn't let it get in the way of taking the plunge.

About $100,000 was raised this year for the Special Olympics.
