On Thursday afternoon, LSU head coach Les Miles put on his mad hat and repelled down a 24-story building, One America Place, in Baton Rouge.
According to WWL.com, Miles joined Miss Louisiana Lauren Vizza, Louisiana State Senator Fred Mills and Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle to “raise awareness of the need for parents willing to adopt.” The event was part of the Louisiana Family Forum’s “Over the Edge for Adoption” campaign.
“Coach Les Miles is tops of the list and he’ll be going off at one o’clock,” said spokesman Randy Hayden.
“We’re trying to bring some attention to the fact Louisiana has almost 500 children in its foster care program right now,” Hayden said. “We’re trying to get them adopted.”
