At 3:30 p.m. on Friday, I'm taking the plunge and jumping off the side of the Beau Rivage — attached to a safety harness, of course.
The Mississippi Gulf Coast Habitat for Humanity is raising funds by giving South Mississippians the chance to rappel over the edge of the Beau Rivage.
Each person gliding down the casino on Friday and Saturday have raised at least $1000 for the nonprofit organization.
Habitat, who is letting media rappel down the wall, is also allowing participants to wear GoPros if they raise at least $1,500.

If you need a good chuckle, come watch me make a total fool of myself. I think I'm athletic because I do CrossFit, but in reality the only rappelling I've ever done is attempting to climb a wall during a marathon run. Let's just say that didn't end well.
Come cheer on Team Sun Herald tomorrow on the top of the parking garage!
