As you climb with us to new heights in 2022, the American Lung Association’s number one priority continues to be your health and safety and that of your loved ones, our volunteers and all event attendees. With this in mind, we have made the decision to change the date of the Portland Fight For Air Climb to Sunday, June 26, 2022. All other event details will remain the same.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope you will appreciate that this is to ensure a truly memorable and healthy return to climbing the US Bancorp Tower. We know how important this event is to you and all those who support our efforts to end COVID-19, defend against future respiratory viruses and continue to be the trusted champion of lung health as we have been for the past 115 years.
