Rappelling event benefits brain cancer research

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Dozens of people are going over the edge to benefit brain cancer research. This weekend marks the annual Over the Edge rappelling event.

Saturday was the VIP preview with the actual event happening Sunday at the Manchester Grand Hyatt downtown.

American Idol winner David Cook was one of the first to head down the building Saturday and shared his personal reason for participating.

"I think that after losing my brother to a brain tumor back in 2009, I've said it a lot of times before, I think that any opportunity I can get to make a fool of myself for a good cause, I'm willing to do."

There is still time to sign up -- just head to otesandiego.org.
