Our Fight For Air Climb events have been reimagined to provide the experience you know and love, while adhering to CDC guidance. It will take all of us staff, volunteers, and guests to make event day a success.

In light of COVID-19, this year’s event will be held at Lucas Oil Stadium. We strongly encourage participants and volunteers to be vaccinated.

We will continue to closely monitor local health conditions and CDC recommendations. Additional protocols will be put into place as needed including health screenings, limited event capacity, masks, and social distancing.

    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.
