When you participate in a Fight For Air Climb event, you are stepping up to make a positive impact for those affected by lung disease. You will raise funds to support the American Lung Association's mission while climbing the stairs of a skyscraper.

Whether you are climbing alone or with friends and family, for a healthier lifestyle or in honor of all those who are affected by lung disease, you will achieve a sense of personal accomplishment when you reach the top. Defeating the physical challenge and reaching the height of your fundraising potential will be a gratifying experience. Every Step Counts as we move forward in our fight for healthy lungs and clean air!

Register today, and we will help you from the first step in your Climb experience all the way to the finish line. There is no elevator to a cure; you have to take the stairs. Contact us with questions or for more information.

The Fight For Air Climb is one of the American Lung Association's signature fundraising events. Climbs are held in prominent skyscrapers, giving participants the opportunity to join together with friends, family and co-workers to climb to the top of the building! Over the last several years, our Fight For Air Climb events have raised more than $53 million to support the mission of the American Lung Association.

More than 26,000 participants from 44 Climb events across the country came together last year to raise more than $7.4 million. This year, you can raise money to support research, patient education and advocacy efforts.

The Fight For Air Climbs vary in the number of flights and stairs to climb, but each event offers an opportunity for teams and individuals to challenge themselves. Whether you are climbing as a part of a healthy lifestyle, to beat your previous time 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.
