THANK YOU for being a part of the 2021 Fight For Air Climb Philadelphia. Together, we each climbed 1,088 steps, and raised funds to help save lives, to improve lung health and prevent lung disease through research, education and advocacy.

Your support makes our work possible for the nearly 37 million individuals living with lung disease in the United States.

It’s not too late to earn additional fundraising incentives! You have until July 12 to qualify for our incentive program. View our incentive flyer to see what you could earn!

      Why We Need You in the Fight

      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.

      Over the last 12 years, the Climbers have raised more than $65 million to support the mission of the American Lung Association.

      Join us. Because Every Step Counts and every step makes a difference.
