Due to the high up-front costs associated with Climb for Clean Air, limited climb slots and the long lead time needed to recruit and train other climbers, the American Lung Association adheres to a strict cancellation policy.
Our climb registration fees and donations are non-refundable and non-transferable, regardless of the reason for cancellation, and will be retained to support the mission of the American Lung Association.
If you must cancel, and you do so in writing by March 31, 2018, you will have no further obligation than the registration fee you have already paid and any contributions you or your donors have made. If you cancel on or after April 1, 2018, you will be obligated for the minimum fundraising amount for the mountain you registered for:
Mt. Baker - $3,150 (Deadline:June 1, 2018)
Mt. Hood - $3,400 (Deadline: June 1, 2018)
Mt. Rainier - $3,900 (Deadline: June 1, 2018)
Occasionally a climber must cancel after March 31, 2018 due to a (new) medical condition or injury, and they ask if their fundraising may be “carried forward” so they can climb the following year without having to re-solicit their donors. In such an event, the ALA will work to fill that climber’s spot. IF we are able to do so, AND all our up-front expenses for the injured climber’s spot have been covered, then we will allow that climber to carry forward their fundraising to the new year. The climber would be responsible for registering the following year and paying that year’s registration fees.
Cancellation requests must be mailed (not e-mailed) to:
