Looking to get involved? Looking to support a good, credible cause? Look no further than the Fight For Air Climb. The American Lung Association hosts this event each year as a way to support and fight for healthy lungs. The climb will be taking place on Sunday March 10 at the Presidential Towers downtown.
What do you need to know? Well, participants have the option climb 1, 2, 3 or all 4 of the towers. Climbing all 4 towers comes out to a total of 2,340 steps! There are several different ways you can get involved. You have the option of signing up as a team or an individual climber, as well as joining an existing team. For those of you who feel you are up for the challenge and want to take it up a notch, you can enter your team into the stairclimb relay challenge, which would consist of a 4-person team, with each member tackling one of the Presidential Towers, climbing 45 floors. Each team member is expected to raise a minimum of $100 by the race date.
If climbing up thousands of steps isn’t your cup of tea, don’t worry there are still ways you can get involved! You can donate to the event by sponsoring a climber, donating to a team or donating to the event itself.
With your support, whether in actual steps climbed or money donated, know that you are making a difference. Lung disease is the number-three killer in the United States, responsible for one in six deaths. Do your part to join the fight for healthy lungs, healthy air and continuing steps towards finding a cure for everyone who suffers from lung disease.
