Every Step Counts

Outdoors, onward, upward and around the world.

COVID-19. Lung Cancer. Lung disease. Clean Air. That's why we Climb.

We're taking the Climb outside and around the world 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 reimagined Climb in 2021. 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. There's even a Climb Your Way option for those who can't make it to the event, and those participating in our in-person Climb can use Climb21 as a great training opportunity.

Introducing Climb21

21 Days. 21 Climbs.

New this year! – Climb21 is a chance to Climb Your Way and travel the world on your terms with the American Lung Association. For the 21 days leading up to our outdoor Climb (Date TBD), join us as we “climb” the steps of famous landmarks across the globe, nation and in your own backyard.

Using our updated Fight For Air Climb app’s Activity Tracker (available for Apple and Android devices), you can track your steps and raise money to earn great prizes while participating in Climb21, our new and exciting way to “travel” and train around the world.

Complete local landmarks, take a road trip across the country or explore the world with beautiful and historic locations. The more funds you raise and steps you take for our mission, the more well-travelled you’ll be. From a Localista to a high-skies Jet-Setter to a worldly Globetrotter, you can climb the same number of steps as iconic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world (a towering 2,909 steps).

We need you in the fight now more than ever. Come outside for our in-person event, Climb Your Way with Climb21 or participate in both! Join us for the shared challenge, for the camaraderie, and for a world free of all lung disease, including COVID-19.

More details on an in-person Climb and Climb21 coming soon!

      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.
