KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The "Dare Me For Charity" event is traveling across the country to 32 different cities setting up in parking lots just like they did in Kansas City on Thursday.
Small groups of people went up on a lift as high as four stories, and jumped down to an air bag for charity. The charity of choice in Kansas City was Healing House.
The jumpers wore orange to show support for the house and its mission. Right now there are 110 recovering addicts and alcoholics, and 25 children staying at the house. Its founder, Bobbi Jo Reed, says the house is losing its government funding in late September. She worries about what's going to happen to the people who are staying there.
In an effort to help, people, including FOX 4’s Kerri Stowell, made the four-story jump to try and help. Watch the jump in the video.
