Climb Your Way Till the End of May

The same SoCal Climb the way you know it… Just extended till the end of May! Choose how you want to climb:

Coordinate a Campus Climb. Want to climb with your community? Create a campus climb for your business or organization. From Universal studios, to a campus like UCLA, or even your place of work. Rally your troops and get out and climb.

Climb Your Way. Have a hiking trail or staircase in mind you would like to conquer? Maybe you want to take it to your Stair Master or do mountain climbers in your own home!

Are you more virtual? Download our Fight For Air Climb app on Apple or Android . This newly designed app will track your seps to keep your training on track. Bonus: this free app allows you to not only invite friends and family to join your team, but also to solicit donations in just a few taps. You can also use the app to update your Personal Fundraising Page, check your fundraising progress, send pre-crafted donation requests via email, text and more.

Other? Email us if you would like some coaching on how to Climb Your Way. SoCalClimb@Lung.org

Your support is critical to our efforts now more than ever. Our SoCal Fight For Air Climb supports free lung health education, PPE distribution to underserved communities, lifesaving research and ongoing advocacy efforts in our state. Join us outdoors this May in our Fight For Air Climb.

Every Step Counts

Outdoors, onward and upward.

Healthy lungs, clean air, and the end of COVID-19. That’s why we Climb.

We're taking the Climb outside in 2021. We’re moving onward and upward, safely and responsibly, so that we can make an impact now to ensure a healthier future for all.

Join us outside for a re-imagined Climb. All are welcome to share in this adventure, whether you’re new to the event or a veteran Climber.

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. Maybe you want to take to stairs or to a hiking trail. You can even bike ride or do mountain climbers as part of your climb. There’s even a Climb Your Way virtual option for those who choose.

Your safety is always our number one priority. While we are planning for an outdoor event, we are continually monitoring local conditions with regard to COVID-19. Check this page for the most up-to-date information about the event.

We need you in the fight now more than ever. Come outside for the shared challenge, for the camaraderie, and for a world free of all lung disease.


Thank you to all our fundraisers!

      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.
