COVID-19. Lung Cancer. Lung disease. Clean Air. That's why we Climb.
We're taking the Climb outside and around the world in 2022. 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 at Nissan Stadium. All are welcome to share in this adventure, whether you're new to the event or a veteran Climber.
As you can imagine, the stairs at Nissan Stadium are much different than the stairwells of the 505 building where Climb Nashville is typically held. Below are the route options for this year’s Fight For Air Climb with stair count totals.
Stadium Climbers: This route will include weaving up and down the Lower Bowl at Nissan Stadium for a total of 2,817 stairs and equates to about 1.3 miles.
Firefighters and First Responders: This route will include weaving up and down the Upper Bowl for a total of 3,322 stairs and equates to about 1.5 miles.
Ultimate Climbers (Titan Challenge): TThis route is for those looking for an even tougher challenge the TITAN Challenge! This route will include weaving up and down the Lower Bowl and continuing up to weave up and down the Upper Bowl at Nissan Stadium for a total of 6,139 stairs and equates to about 3 miles.
Climb Your Way (VIRTUAL): We recommend shooting for the 2,817 stairs the Stadium Climbers will be doing which equates to about 1.3 miles.
In March of 2020, 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.
