Thank you from the bottom of our lungs!

The 2024 Fight For Air Climb - Tampa marked an extraordinary day, made possible by your generous support!

Tampa’s 19th Annual Fight For Air Climb, brought together hundreds of incredible lung health advocates, elite athletes, corporate leaders, and our communities’ brave firefighters & law enforcement departments. We had an excellent day at the iconic Bank of America Plaza, conquering 914+ steps in the fight for clean air and healthy lungs.

Your efforts continue to make a difference and help take the mission of the American Lung Association to new heights. Your support makes our work possible for the 475,100+ in the Tampa Bay community living with lung disease.

Thank you to all the participants, volunteers, donors, and corporate partners for your involvement in this year’s Fight For Air Climb. We are truly grateful for your support and proud of the impact we’ve made as we get one step closer to a world free of lung disease.
