THANK YOU for being a part of the 2021 Fight For Air Climb Detroit!

Your support makes our work possible for the 1.8 million Michiganders living with lung disease. Every dollar raised supports the Lung Association’s research, educational programs and advocacy efforts.

It’s not too late to earn an additional fundraising incentive! You have until June 22 to qualify for our incentive program. View our Incentive Flier to check what you could earn!

We hope you’ll join us to celebrate an iconic year of Climb Detroit at our Virtual Climb Awards Party June 24 at 6 PM on Zoom. RSVP here.

On behalf of our Climb Detroit Team, Ambassadors, Executive Leadership Committee and Local Leadership Board Members- thank you from the bottom of our LUNGS!

      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 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.
