CAPE CORAL, Fla. — Dozens rappelled down 19 stories Sunday at The Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village as part of a fundraiser.

Participants raised $1,500 apiece for The Heights Foundation, a nonprofit benefitting the Harlem Heights neighborhood in south Fort Myers.

“I was scared to death at first, but once you go over the edge, it was so much fun,” said Michelle Graham, one of those who took part. “The view of the Westin and Cape Coral and our waterways, it was beautiful.”
