1000 Second Avenue is the fifteenth tallest building in Seattle, which doesn't sound so tall. But when you say that it's forty stories tall, that changes things. Especially when you're considering climbing on the roof and rappelling down the side all the way to the bottom. A bunch of folks will be doing just that this weekend as part of a fundraising effort for Special Olympics Washington. Ron & Don Show host Ron Upshaw and producer Libby Denkmann recently took an elevator ride to the top of the building to see what they're in for. It's...something.
For those interested in learning more about the drive, which has raised over $75K so far, you can go here.
