2016 Fight for Air Climb - Bennington, VT

THANK YOU to the Participants, Volunteers and Sponsors who came out to support the fight for healthy lungs and clean air. We couldn’t do it without you! We look forward to seeing you again next year!



By joining the Fight for Air Climb, you are helping to make a positive impact in the lives of those affected by lung disease. Participants raise funds to support the mission of the American Lung Association while training to climb the stairs of a skyscraper, stadium, or other landmark building.

Make the most of your experience and climb as a part of a team. Teams consist of friends, family and co-workers who want to help raise awareness and funds to support research, patient programs and advocacy efforts. You can climb as an individual, but climbing as a part of a team increases the impact you can make!

Once you register, you'll have access to your Fight for Air Climb Participant Center. You’ll have the ability to customize your personal web page and share your reason for climbing, send emails to ask others to join you or donate, and even download Facebook and smart phone apps. We are here to help you, from the first step in your climb all the way to the top!

Contact us anytime and check back often for updates on the Fight for Air Climb!
