Where you'll be climbing

The Fight For Air Climb, is returning to Scottsdale Stadium, featuring one-of-a-kind sunset views of Camelback Mountain and is the perfect setting for a Friday evening of fun, challenge and camaraderie. The Fight for Air Climb will weave through the lower seating of Scottsdale Stadium then tackle the upper stairs twice - before crossing the finish line and joining the after party celebration in the Charros Lodge.

New This Year: Climbers seeking an additional challenge can participate in the Elite Climber Power Hour, going through the course as many times as possible/desired from 5-6pm. The time of your first Power Hour climb will be included in the regular climb time rankings.

      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.
