The Fight For Air Climb is Going Virtual!

Fight For Air Climb - Group PhotoWe want to assure participants, volunteers, and staff planning to attend American Lung Association events that their health and safety is our top priority. Because of this we’ve decided to make the Climb a virtual event.

From May 1st to June 30th we encourage you to head outdoors to one of the many beautiful mountain trails throughout Arizona for your climb. Same mission, just a different place to climb.

Now more than ever the American Lung Association needs your support! ALA researchers are innovating in new ways every day. Breakthrough findings from our researcher John Schoggins, Ph.D., could inform coronavirus treatment strategies. But we need support from the community to help fund this research. That’s why we’re inviting you to climb with us, virtually!

Please join the virtual community of climbers supporting lung health research throughout May and June! Help us find a cure for COVD-19 (coronavirus) and other lung diseases that effect our community.

Post your pictures and videos on social media #fightforairclimb #everystepcounts #climbAZ

If you're looking for suggestions on where to climb, we've got you covered!

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.
