Fundraising Incentives

Be Rewarded

People who raise $175 or more will be rewarded with an additional fundraising incentive. This is our way of saying thank you for your fundraising accomplishments to support the mission of the American Lung Association.

View our fundraising incentive flier.

We recognize that some of you may prefer to not receive a fundraising incentive to ensure all of your donations go to support research, education and advocacy efforts. In that case, you can decline your incentive post-event. Please contact Deena Sarno at with any questions.

Fight For Air Climb Mobile Ring

Want to be rewarded? Make a self-donation of $33 or more and receive this official Fight For Air Climb Mobile Ring. Individuals who self-donate raise twice as much as individuals who don't.
