Raising money for charity has turned into an adrenal producing adventure in Topeka.

The Adventure seekers turned out Saturday morning to rappel down a 13-story Westar Energy building. The event was a fundraiser for the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center.

Each participant is responsible for raising $1,000 for the center. The Children’s Discovery Center and Over the Edge, a Canadian company that works with nonprofits, hosted the event.

The participants included newlyweds Madison and Jenni Ruelle, who exchanged a kiss after making their way down building. Another participant, 33-year-old Chris Rogers, of Lawrence, said he had pure adrenaline running through his veins when he stepped off the edge of the building.

The money raised will go toward educational programs, exhibits and camps that the center provides.
