Lindenhurst woman rappels 27 stories for lung health

Quiana Bell of Lindenhurst was among 90 people who stepped over the edge 278 feet above State and Lake Streets in Skyline Plunge! Chicago on May 5 and 6. Courageous participants rappelled 27 stories down theWit Hotel to raise more than $120,000 for Respiratory Health Association of Metropolitan Chicago’s local lung disease research and programs.

Many people participate in Skyline Plunge! Chicago for the thrill of it, but more than two-thirds also have a personal connection to the event. They rappel in honor or in memory of a loved one affected by asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer or other lung diseases.

Skyline Plunge! will return to Chicago on September 8 and 9, 2012. Register, donate or learn more at
