Watch people rappel down Lansing’s Boji Tower today

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — It’s 80 degrees, the people are out and about–and it’s a great day to watch people rappel down a 23-story building in Lansing.

Over the Edge is a fundraising event by the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing and me2u promotions, LLC.

It’s happening Saturday, May 18, from 9 a.m.-7 p.m., at the historic Boji Tower in downtown Lansing.

Seventy-two local thrill-seekers will be rappeling down the Boji Tower’s 23 stories, organizers said. The only other requirement: each of them has to raise at least $1,000 in donations for the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing.

“I am very excited about this event,” said Rebecca Kasen, Executive Director of the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing. “It will bring awareness of the Center to community members who don’t know about our services, and the funds will be used to expand current programs and facilitate new ones.”

Services at the Women’s Center include career counseling and resume preparation; individual counseling; personal and feminine hygiene products; financial coaching; support groups and workshops.

The Boji Tower is at 124 W. Allegan St., in downtown Lansing.
