Hundreds of people took part in the 5th annual Hike for Lung Health in Lincoln Park Sunday morning.

Participants walked in honor of those suffering from lung diseases such as asthma, lung cancer and COPD. Among the walkers was Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon, who walked in support of the Bernie Mac Foundation. The late comedian suffered from a lung condition called sarcoidosis.

ABC7's Ravi Bachiwal was the emcee for the event.

As of Sunday evening, the walk raised $91,000 for lung health organizations.
