As the trusted champion of lung health, the American Lung Association closely follows CDC guidance related to COVID-19. Our COVID-19 safety protocols may shift in response to updated COVID-19 local conditions and local ordinances. When the local community spread referenced on the CDC map is high, shown in orange, masks are encouraged in high traffic areas. The American Lung Association reserves the right to adjust safety protocols, up to seven days prior, based on CDC guidance and/or venue, state, and local ordinances.

      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.
