Step Up to the Challenge


What is The Fight For Air Climb?

The Fight For Air Climb is one of the signature fundraising events of the American Lung Association. Climb Atlanta will be held in the tallest building in Atlanta, 11th tallest in the U.S. and 67th tallest building in the world! Participants join together with friends, family and co-workers to climb 55 floors, over 1,300 stairs to the top of Bank of America Plaza. Your participation will raise the funds necessary to provide life-saving education, research and advocacy so we can beat lung disease and soon find a cure.

How do my donations help?

What is a Matching Gift?

Many employers will match donations made by members of their staff. Please check with your Human Resources and/or Finance department to see if they have a matching gift program. Speak to your event manager Brooke Cowen about matching gifts.

What is a Team Captain?

Being a team captain is a fun and rewarding experience. As a team captain, you will gather together friends, family members and co-workers and encourage them to participate in the event together. Each team captain helps guide their team members, from online registration to setting and achieving a fundraising goal, to seeing them through to the finish line.

Is there a minimum fundraising requirement?

Yes, there is a minimum fundraising requirement of $100 per person. Climbers have until event day to meet their minimum fundraising requirement of $100 per person. Climbers who have not met their fundraising requirement on event day will will be asked to pay the outstanding amount in order to participate in the climb.

Does my registration fee go towards the $100 fundraising minimum for each person?

No, the registration fee and the fundraising minimum are separate.

I'm nervous about raising the $100 fundraising minimum. Do you have any tips for fundraising?

Of course! A few ideas for fundraising can include a garage sale, bake sale, or even asking your boss for a casual day for donations at your office. For many more ideas, please log in to your Participant Center or contact the Special Events staff at 770-544-0532.
