The Premier Stair-Climbing Event in Los Angeles

Our Fight For Air Climb is designed for every type of climber, from beginners to competitive climbers.

How you climb is up to you: race to the top or take it at your own speed.

Assemble your crew: for the best Climb experience, form a team of friends and family, coworkers and/or neighbors.

Where you'll be climbing

The Fight For Air Climb is returning to the LA Memorial Coliseum. Known as “The Greatest Stadium in the World”, the Coliseum legacy of events hosted in 90+ years reads like no other. The LA Memorial Coliseum is the perfect setting for a day of fun, challenge and community.

Space on the stairs is limited, so save your spot and register today.

Please note there is a $100 fundraising minimum for all climbers to participate at the LA Memorial Coliseum on February 26, 2023

      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.

      Join us. Because Every Step Counts and every step makes a difference.
