4th Annual Fight for Air Climb

Go Vertical for a Great Cause!

The American Lung Association is presenting the 4th annual competitive stairclimb, Fight for Air Climb, in Dallas on February 18, 2012. This fun athletic event will challenge participants to climb the Renaissance Tower in downtown Dallas. Participants may run or walk each one of the 53 floors on their way to a celebration at the top.

Stairclimbs are emerging athletic competitions that take participants beyond the average run/walk event. These “vertical marathons” are growing in popularity. Participants can compete in the Fight for Air Climb as individuals or as teams. All participants will have their time calculated through an electronic chip-timing system. Teams will have the ability to start the race together and support one another during the climb. Water stations and rest floors will be available periodically throughout the climb if needed.

Through team sponsorships and donations, Fight for Air Climb participants will support the American Lung Association’s fight against lung disease. Proceeds from Fight for Air Climb will help find cures, protect clean air and promote smokefree kids.

Lung disease is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States. 1 in 7 Americans will die from lung disease. Lung cancer is the single deadliest cancer, killing more women than breast and ovarian cancer combined.
