Susan Skyline Plunge - Chicago

Susan Reyna-Guerrero, LCSW, President & CEO for Beacon Therapeutic Diagnostic and Treatment Center is going over the edge and needs your help! Not to worry, she is in her right mind - she just needs your money as she raises funds for the upcoming Skyline Plunge! Chicago, a charity event in which adventurous Chicagoans will rappel 27 stories (278 feet) down the exterior façade of theWit Hotel's signature lightning bolt. Reyna-Guerrero needs to raise at least $500 BEFORE April 4, 2014 in order to secure her Plunge! spot; she needs to raise $2,500 before the event date Sunday, May 4, 2014. BONUS: Upon reaching her mandatory commitment of $1,000, half of what she raises over the 1k will be contributed to Beacon Therapeutic . . . a win-win for promoting healthy lungs and for health education services at Beacon!

Susan's Motivation

Susan is back to ascend the Wit Hotel in honor of my mother, Bertha Reyna, who waged a 6 month battle with Stage 4 lung cancer despite never having smoked. It's now been two years since Susan's mom went home to heaven. This rappel is Susan's way of keeping her mom's spirit of adventure alive and continuing her commitment to helping others.

  • Respiratory Health Association's website
  • Write a check and mail it to Beacon's Administrative Office located at 1912 West 103rd Street, Chicago, IL 60643

An exhilarating experience, Skyline Plunge! Chicago is expected to raise $85,000 for Respiratory Health Association's lung disease research and programs.
