Our Climb Safe Commitment includes spatial distancing, health screenings, sanitation protocols, and face masks.
The American Lung Association is committed to the health and safety of our participants and volunteers. We will continue to closely monitor public health conditions and CDC guidelines as we plan for the 2022 event.
Whether 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
climb with friends and family to honor a loved one
We have participant options for every type of Climber, including special categories for Law Enforcement and Firefighters.
Where You'll Be Climbing
The 2022 Fight For Air Climb Des Moines is returning to Principal Park in Downtown Des Moines! Featuring one-of-a-kind views of the Downtown Des Moines skyline, Principal Park is the perfect setting for a day of fun, challenge and camaraderie.
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 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.
