The Fight For Air Climb is an American Lung Association signature fundraising event. Climbs are held in prominent skyscrapers across the country, giving participants the opportunity to join together with friends, family and co-workers as they climb the stairs of the building to the top! Your participation will raise the funds necessary to help provide life-saving lung health education, research and advocacy efforts.
The Vue building is 50 floors and 883 steps!
You can register online by choosing the Register option above and specifying your participation type.
With the generous support of people like you, the American Lung Association saves lives by fighting for healthy lungs and healthy air. Today, our fight is more important than ever, and 87 cents of every dollar raised by our organization goes directly to education, research and advocacy.
Your donations can go even further with a matching gift! Many companies offer matching gift programs in which the company will match an employee’s contribution to a charitable organization. If you are not sure if you qualify for a matching gift, please use the company search tool below. The tool will provide you with information regarding minimum and maximum match criteria, as well as steps on how to get started.
Some companies without a formal program may still match your gift, if you ask your personnel or human resources department.
Being a team captain is a fun and rewarding experience. As a team captain, you will gather together friends, family members and co-workers. Each team captain helps guide their team members, from online registration, to setting and achieving your fundraising goal, to seeing them through to the finish line.
