Skyline Plunge! Chicago, rappelling down the 27 stories of theWit Hotel - the one the with the chartreuse thunderbolt - designed by architect Jackie Koo. In its second year, the event was expected to raise over $100,000 for lung disease research, benefiting the Respiratory Health Association of Metropolitan Chicago.
I think the organizers may be missing a beat here. Next year, they should rent out rooms along the plunge route as performance space, allowing less adventurous participants to take pictures, put on a performance or flash the plungers. Think Redmoon meets spider man/woman.
