Fight For Air Climb Teams are comprised of companies, friends, families, and first responders all climbing for those who have been affected by lung disease. Teams can be as small as 2 or as big as 100+. However, a team must have at least 5 team members in order to qualify for team awards. Once you register you will have access to tools to help ensure you have a great team experience.
