Ready to get Virtual

In order to make this year’s event as interactive as possible, we’ve created a Climb Atlanta Strava Club! Strava is a free application you can download on your smart phone to track your miles in support of the American Lung Association.

Find out more here!

Virtual Walk/ClimbFrom May 20th to June 20th we encourage you to head outdoors to one of the many beautiful trails throughout Atlanta for your climb. Same mission, just a different place to climb.

We will be using May 20th June 19th as an opportunity to practice for our Virtual Climb which will be held on June 20th. Plus, to kick-off the Virtual Climb, we will be hosting a Facebook Live event on June 20th at 8:30 am that will start with an opening ceremony that can be viewed on Facebook.

Now more than ever the American Lung Association needs your support! The Lung Association just launched the COVID-19 Action Initiative, a comprehensive $25M initiative to end COVID-19 and defend against future respiratory virus pandemics.

This initiative will be used to fund respiratory research, enhance key public health measures through education and advocacy, and establish an advanced network of public and private entities to develop new vaccines, detection tests and treatment therapies, to stop future respiratory virus pandemics.

This is an ambitious undertaking, but with your help we can raise the funds to make this happen!

Please join the virtual community of climbers supporting lung health research through May 20th - June 20th. Help us find a cure for COVID-19 and other lung diseases that affect our community!

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.
