Thank you from the bottom of our lungs!

Our Fight For Air Climb presented by KIA of East Hartford is designed for every type of climber, from beginners to competitive climbers.

The 2024 Fight For Air Climb Hartford marked an extraordinary day, made possible by your generous support! We loved climbing to new heights with you back at Hartford 21.

Your efforts continue to make a difference and help take the mission of the American Lung Association to new heights. We will see you in Spring 2025 for our 17th annual Hartford Fight For Air Climb.
