Samuel J. Tinaglia Jr. recently rappelled 30 stories down the side of the Hyatt Hotel on the Chicago River during the Make-a-Wish Foundation Over the Edge fundraising event. Tinaglia and fellow rapellers raised $300,000 toward the granting of wishes for children with critical illnesses. A five-time cancer survivor and Make-a-Wish grant recipient, Tinaglia graduated with highest honors from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a bachelor of science in recreation, sport and tourism. He is the son of Fra Noi correspondent Samuel J. Tinaglia Sr.
