Covid-19. Lung cancer. Lung disease. Clean air. That’s why we Climb.

We climbed outside at Progressive Field in 2021. We moved onward and upward, safely and responsibly, so that we can make an impact now to ensure a healthier future for all. Thank you for all your support this year and helping us not only reach but exceed our goal during this extraordinary time!



Why We Climb

  • We embrace a challenge that makes us better
  • Because healthy lungs need clean air to breathe
  • Every step gets us closer to a world without lung disease

Benefits of Climbing

  • Improves balance and coordination
  • Strengthens more major muscle groups compared to walking, running or jogging on a flat surface
  • Consistent stair-climbing as a daily activity helps lower mortality risk

What You Get

  • Every climber receives an official Fight For Air Climb t-shirt
  • A sense of accomplishment for supporting people who are fighting for every breath
  • Enjoy a unique event experience with family, friends or colleagues.

      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.
