When you participate in a Fight For Air Climb, you are stepping up 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.

Whether you are climbing alone or with friends and family, as a part of a healthy lifestyle or in honor of all those who are affected by lung disease, you will achieve a sense of personal accomplishment as you reach the top of the building and the height of your fundraising potential. Every step you take moves us forward in our fight for healthy lungs and clean air.

Join us for the 13th annual Denver Fight For Air Climb. This Colorado experience will leave you feeling accomplished and thankful for your lungs when you finish climbing the 1098 steps. Are you still wanting more? Register for the Ultimate Climb, allowing you to ascend the building as many times as you can in an hour.

We encourage you to start today and are here to help you, from the first step in your Climb all the way to the top. Contact us with questions or for more information.
