WILMINGTON, Del. - Ever thought of rappelling down a 17-story, 200-foot building?

How about if it's for charity?

Well, dozens of Delawareans walked the side of the TD Bank building in Wilmington to raise awareness and money for Special Olympics Delaware.

According to the organization, each person raised a minimum of $1,100 just to participate, with "76 edgers" raising more than $117,000 this year.
