Dozens rappelled down a downtown hotel Saturday to fight lung disease.

More than 55 people stepped off the edge of theWit Hotel more than 270 feet above the ground in the fifth Skyline Plunge event.

Organizers expect to raise $80,000 for the Respiratory Health Association.

The group promotes research into lung disease, tobacco control, and improved air quality.
