Nik Wallenda Reaches $50,000 Fundraising Goal

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. - It appears that daredevil Nik Wallenda has raised enough money to cover the costs associated with his high-wire walk over Niagara Falls.

A page set up on the fundraising site, indiegogo.comshows that Wallenda was able to raise $50,421 by the end of his June 30 deadline.

That successfully surpasses the listed goal on the page of $50,000.

Wallenda set up the page two-weeks before his walk to help pay for expenses not covered by the television contract and sponsorships.

His manager, Winston Simone, told 2 On Your Side that they had encountered "unforeseen costs" associated with the drilling and rigging of the wire apparatus.
