The Premier Stair-Climbing Event in Detroit

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.

At the American Lung Association, we are dedicated to reducing the impact of lung disease and lung cancer and to ensuring a world with healthy lungs and clean air for all. Our mission is vital; when you can’t breathe, nothing else matters.

Comerica Park Conquered!

We did it! On May 19, over 1,000 participants and volunteers came together to support a future free of lung disease with clean air for all. We took on the stair-climbing challenge of a lifetime and are grateful for all the support and camaraderie that came with it. Thank you for your support.
