At this point the 2018 Fight for Air Climb in Detroit is SOLD OUT of every spot except for volunteer. We understand your frustration and hope that next year we can provide an event that can accommodate more participants.  However, there are still other ways you can participate and raise money.  As a volunteer, you register on the site just like a participant would. You can still set fundraising goals, have a participant center page on the website and have access to all the insider climb info.  If you hit the fundraising VIP status as a volunteer, we will still honor that status as a participant next year!

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.

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.
