On Friday, May 12, LeChase Superintendent Neil Lawther rappelled 240 feet down the side of Kodak Office tower in Rochester as part of the annual 21 Stories for Scouts fundraiser for the Boy Scouts’ Seneca Waterways Council.
LeChase and HB Cornerstone joined The Strong National Museum of Play in forming a team for the event. Together, they reached their goal of raising $6,000, giving several brave team members – including Lawther and HB Cornerstone’s Matt Emens – the unique opportunity to descend the building.
“It is a little intimidating climbing over the edge of the railing 21 stories up and letting go… but once I trusted the rope and harness it was no big deal. I found it very exhilarating,” Lawther noted. “I’m glad I did it and it was for a great cause.”
