TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -

WFSB is again the official media sponsor for Susan G. Komen® Connecticut, this time for the 2015 Rappel for the Cure (An Over the Edge Event).

The 2015 Rappel for the Cure will take place on Friday, October 16 at State House Square in Hartford.

According to their website, the Rappel for the Cure is “Komen Connecticut’s newest FUNdraising event that is geared toward the fearless or those looking to overcome their fears.”

Experts will be on site to provide training prior to the rappel. With the highest incidence of breast cancer in the United States being here in Connecticut, this event is a great way to raise funds that will make an impact.

Seventy-five percent of Komen Connecticut's net proceeds support local breast cancer programs across Connecticut and the remaining twenty-five percent is invested in research to find the causes and cures for the disease.

WFSB reporter Courtney Zieller will be taking part in the event and will rappel down the 14 stories down the side of State House Square.
