Climb Higher in 2022

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

  • climb to honor, or in memory of a special person
  • climb for the challenge of it
  • take it at your own pace
  • participate virtually, using our Climb Your Way option

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 Portland Fight For Air Climb will be held at US Bancorp Tower (affectionately known as The Big Pink) in downtown Portland, with its sweeping views of the city and majestic Mt. Hood. Featuring one-of-a-kind views of the city skyline and one of the best set of stairs in the Pacific Northwest, the US Bancorp Tower is the perfect setting for a day of fun, endurance and camaraderie.

      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.
