May 22, 2016 was our last rappelling event for now. Steadily increasing costs of staging this event and promoting the event in our city has led RHA to this decision. Please join us for other RHA events benefitting lung health.
Since 2009, 948 brave people safely experienced rappelling down 278 feet down the façade of theWit Hotel to support lung health and take part in Chicago's first ever urban rappel in the heart of downtown Chicago. $1.1 million dollars was raised for lung cancer research, kids with asthma and clean air quality.
We have hosted over 100 local media personalities and we have been the subject of two live nationwide television broadcasts (FOX and ABC's Good Morning America) from theWit Hotel.
The generosity of theWit, our participants and donors has helped us to serve our mission here in Chicago, and gave us the opportunity to offer Chicago one of the most unique charity fundraising experiences we could imagine.Thank you and we hope to see you again.
