Adventurous Chicago area residents rappelled 27 stories down the exterior facade of the new Wit hotel Sunday, as part of a fundraising event.

One hundred people took the plunge down the side of the building at State and Lake streets to raise money for the Respiratory Health Association of Metro Chicago.

The goal of the event was raise more than $100,000 to fight lung disease.
