COVID-19. Lung Cancer. Lung disease. Clean Air. That’s why we Climb.
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 the steps at SMU University - Gerald J. Ford Stadium.
Just like our indoor event, how you climb outdoors is up to you. You can race to the end or take it at your own pace. There’s even a Climb Your Way option for those who can’t make it to the event.
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.
Over the last 11 years, the Climbers have raised more than $60 million to support the mission of the American Lung Association. Last year, more than 26,000 participants from 43 Climb events across the country came together last year to raise more than $7 million.
Join us. Because Every Step Counts and every step makes a difference.
