Important Announcement

Participants, sponsors, volunteers, donors, supporters and to all who made possible the fundraising success of the 9th annual Louisville Fight For Air Climb,

We express regret for the cancellation of the civilian and emergency responder portion of the event.

With limited resources, the rapid onset of the storm, and a temperature drop of 20 degrees, the priority was to get climbers off icy stadium steps to safety. Gratitude to dozens of volunteers and participants onsite at the outbreak of the storm who assisted in getting individuals to safety and for help breaking down the event despite high winds, driving snow and freezing temperatures.

Registration fees for 2022 participants will be applied to the 2023 Fight For Air Climb Louisville. Although we are not able to re-schedule the 2022 event, we are planning to cater an awards celebration with food, recognitions, and medal presentations for participants and volunteers. Watch for an update on this page.

Eleven climbers were able to complete the Triple Climb before the event was cancelled. View the Triple Climb results.

      Why We Need You in the Fight

      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 $71 million to support the mission of the American Lung Association.

      Join us. Because Every Step Counts and every step makes a difference.
