      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.
