Dozens rappel down Manchester Grand Hyatt for fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - It's the thrill of a lifetime. On November 5 and 6, the west coast's tallest waterfront building will once again be the setting for the 2nd annual fundraising event that challenged and inspired Southern California.  

Dozens of people are taking the plunge down the side of a local hotel during Over the Edge, rappelling down the side of the Manchester Grand Hyatt to raise money for a cause.

Funds raised will support Kids Included Together, a San Diego based non-profit that supports recreational, child development, and youth development programs that include children with and without disabilities.

Seventy people will experience the breathtaking 360-degree view from the top of San Diego and push themselves to the limit by rappelling from the 33rd story of the spectacular Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego.

The rappel begins at 9 a.m. for participants, descending a height of approximately 357 feet in roughly 10 minutes from the hotel's Harbor Tower. Friends, family and supporters can cheer on participants from the poolside landing party, featuring food and live music featuring The Devastators.
