COVID-19. Lung disease. Air pollution. These things aren't going away. That's why we're taking the stairs. We climb for people fighting for breath across the country and in our community. We’re working to make an impact now and to ensure a healthier future for our kids and grandkids.
Whether you're new to stair-climbing, have reached the top before, or you're a firefighter climbing in full gear, this stair-climbing adventure is for you.
How you climb is up to you. You can join us to tackle 45 Floors and 804 Stairs at Carew Tower.
Looking for a different type of challenge? Participate as a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Climber and create your own personal climb challenge that's right for you. It's Your Climb, Your Way, Your Location, Your Rules. Find out more here.
No matter how you choose to climb, we'll help you every step of the way! Climb for the shared challenge. Climb for the camaraderie. Climb for a world free of COVID-19 and lung disease.
In March, the American Lung Association launched a $25 million initiative to end COVID-19 and defend against future respiratory virus pandemics. At the same time, we're continuing our advocacy work to support clean air and redoubling our long-term commitments to lifesaving research.
So far, the Climbers have raised more than $53 million to support the mission of the American Lung Association. Last year, more than 27,000 participants from 43 Climb events across the country came together last year to raise more than $8 million.
Join us. Because Every Step Counts and every step makes a difference.
