WATCH: Erika Erickson rappels down First National Building for charity

How many people get to say they're willingly putting themselves over the edge of a 25 story building all in the name of helping people across the world? Not many. But you can soon count Erika Erickson in that group.

Later in the day on Thursday, FOX 2's Erika Erickson will take the plunge off the top of the First National Building. She'll rappel her down to street below and you can watch it all live on this page!

We'll stream the view from the ground as she works her way down. Plus, she's also wearing a GoPro! Later in the day, we'll post the video exclusively to our Facebook page. Go like our page to see what she sees.

Erika is not exactly a stranger to taking risks. She's been skydiving twice and has always wanted to bungee jump! She says she's not afraid of heights but admits to being more nervous about the harness than the parachute.

So why is she doing this? It's all in the name of helping people in Nepal. The devastating earthquake killed 7,000 people and injured more than 17,000 more. It also destroyed historic structures that had stood in the country for generations.
