Climb Higher in 2022

FF StairsWhether you're new to stair-climbing or a veteran Climber, you can choose your adventure—how you climb is up to you:

  • climb for the top time
  • race for your personal best
  • take it at your own pace

We have participant options for every type of Climber, including special categories for EMTs, First Responders and Firefighters.


Where You'll Be Climbing

The 2022 Miami Fight For Air Climb will be held at LoanDepot Park, home of the Miami Marlins. Featuring one-of-a-kind views of the city skyline and the best set of stairs in South Florida. The Miami Marlin’s Stadium is the perfect setting for a day of fun, challenge and camaraderie.



A word from our COPD Community Champion:
"Holy Cross Health is excited about the opening of the Catherine Yardley Comprehensive Pulmonary Center and what this means for South Florida," said Mark Doyle, president and CEO. "We look forward to providing a local, quality treatment option for residents near and far who have been searching for a comprehensive pulmonary center grounded in research, education and clinical excellence."

      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 $65 million to support the mission of the American Lung Association.

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