Event Going Virtual

The 2020 Fight For Air Climb in St. Louis is going VIRTUAL! While we had hoped to reschedule the event, the ongoing impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community has caused us to adjust that plan. Your health and safety is our top priority.

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.
