Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 18, 2012
MD Practice Solutions will get harnessed up for the fourth annual Skyline Plunge! down the Wit Hotel in downtown Chicago on September 8, 2012. The team of six will rappel 27 stories down the Loop hotel – all for a good cause.
The Skyline Plunge! is hosted by Respiratory Health Association of Metropolitan Chicago (RHAMC), and is an urban rappelling event to raise funding and awareness for local lung disease research and programs. Many of the participants on the MD Practice Solutions’ team are personally affected by lung diseases and rappel in honor or memory of someone touched by asthma, COPD, or lung cancer. This year’s Skyline Plunge! aims to raise over $100,000 for lung disease research.
“MD Practice Solutions looks at the Skyline Plunge! as a great way to raise awareness and funding for a good cause,” said Angela Schul from MD Practice Solutions. “By taking the plunge and rappelling 280 feet down The Wit hotel, we are bringing our support for respiratory disease to new heights.”
The RHAMC holds other city events, including their biggest fundraising event of over $1 million, Hustle up the Hancock. That event doesn't involve rappelling down a building, but it does attract more than 4,000 attendees hiking up the stairs of the John Hancock building.
