BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Louisiana Family Forum hosted its third annual "Over the Edge for Adoption" event in downtown Baton Rouge on Thursday afternoon.
Thrill seekers rappelled 300 feet off of the side of the Capitol One Bank at One American Place. The event was to raise awareness on the many children that are waiting to be adopted.
There are over 4,500 children in Louisiana's foster care system.
Those at the event shared ties to the adoption system and wanted to promote how important adoption is.
The event continues on Friday, June 19.
