Les Miles and Lauren Vizza to Rappel off High Rise in Baton Rouge


Miss Louisiana, Lauren Vizza of Shreveport is set to rappel off a 26-story building in downtown Baton Rouge today.

LSU football coach Les Miles is scheduled to take the plunge with her. The goal of the event is to raise adoption awareness in Louisiana. Vizza says it’s a great cause and she is happy to be able to do a small part to help. She tells us she is scared. But she knows  all safety precautions are being taken since Miles and other high profile politicians will be participating. The event is sponsored by the Louisiana Family Forum and is scheduled for 1:30 today. Vizza says:

“if the only thing stopping me is that I’m afraid, I can do this and afterwards, I will have an incredible story to tell. I can’t adopt a kid right now, but I can do this and get people talking about it.”

LFF hopes to provide a unique moment for increasing awareness of the nearly 500 adoption-eligible children in Louisiana’s Foster Care program. This once-in-a-lifetime experience will feature individuals, including policy makers, pastors and key state leaders, rappelling at One American Place in Downtown Baton Rouge.
