A Boy Scouts fundraiser was the talk of Lexington Wednesday.

Those who raised a minimum of $1,000 were invited to rappel down the Lexington Financial Center or 'Big Blue Building.'

The Boy Scouts hoped to raise $100,000.

ABC 36 caught up John Roberts.

He was rappelling for the first time and said, "After the first five feet it was awesome. But before that it was absolutely terrifying."

The fundraiser continues Thursday.
