Climb Your Way

It's Your Climb. Your Location. On Your Schedule.

Looking for a different type of challenge?

Climb Your Way is the perfect adventure for climbers not able to participate in person. Choose a personal challenge for you and your team or for a solo Climb, whether that be climbing the stairs in your house, running outside in a nearby park, or hiking your favorite trail. It's jumping rope or jumping jacks. It’s your challenge, your way.

As a Climb Your Way participant, you and your team are an important part of the Fight For Air Climb. No matter when, how or where you participate, you will be active alongside a large community helping those fighting for every breath. Join the Fight For Air Climb for the challenge and for a world free of lung disease.
