As we are sure you noticed, participation was down this year due to remaining concerns about the COVID-19 (Coronavirus). However, we can still meet our goal (we are only $25,000 away!) with your help.  

This money will help us provide potentially lifesaving programs and services for residents throughout Oregon. 

Among these important programs and services are: 

  • Radon Forums (Helping people combat the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in the US.)
  • LUNG FORCE Expo (Providing lung cancer patients the very latest in research and treatment options to improve their health.) 
  • Lung Cancer Call on Congress (Demanding our elected representatives fight for our right to accessible health care and increased screening for lung cancer.)
  • Better Breather's Clubs (A safe forum for all those living with lung disease.)
  • Freedom From Smoking (The nation's most successful quit smoking program.)
  • INDEPTH (Curriculum to educate our children on the dangers of vaping.)
  • Asthma Basics online course (Helping those, young and old, cope with this often debilitating disease.)
To keep these important programs and services going right here in Oregon, WE NEED YOUR HELP!

What is a Fight For Air Climb?

One of the American Lung Association's signature fundraising events, Fight For Air Climbs are stair climbs held in prominent skyscrapers around the country. Climbers join friends, family, co-workers or even fly solo, climbing the stairs of the building to the top! Over the last several years, our Fight For Air Climbs have raised more than $53 million to support the mission of the American Lung Association.

More than 27,000 participants from 42 Climb events across the country came together last year to raise more than $8 million. This year, you can join the challenge and raise money to help provide life-saving lung health research, patient education and public policy efforts.

The Fight For Air Climbs vary in the number of stairs to climb, but each event offers an opportunity for teams and individuals to challenge themselves. And every step you take moves us forward in our fight for healthy lungs and clean air.

Are you ready to help make Every Step Count?
