Fight for Air Climbs Coming to City Near You?

Scheduled in early 2012 in some of the tallest downtown buildings in America, these competitive athletic events raise money for the American Lung Association.

Fund raising events for the American Lung Association will being climbers and runners to skyscrapers and stadiums across the country early next year, including Dallas' Renaissance Tower, the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas, and Chicago's Presidential Towers. ALA announced the Dallas Fight for Air Climb will take place Feb. 18 and has posted a map that makes it easy to find others.

Participating individuals and teams are challenged to climb the buildings and to join a celebration when they reach the top floor.

"We are very excited to see the momentum this event has gained since our inaugural climb," said Michelle Bernth, vice president of Marketing, Communications and Volunteer Development for the association. "This year's climb promises to be bigger and better than last year. We guarantee that each participant will have a greater respect for healthy lungs when they reach the top."

ALA says these "vertical marathons" are growing in popularity. Participants are timed electronically; teams can start the race together and support one another during the climb.

The association uses the funds for research on lung disease cures and to protect clean air. "Nearly everyone knows someone who has been affected by some form of lung disease," Bernth said. "Whether you've been touched by asthma, emphysema, lung cancer or tobacco addiction, The Fight for Air Climb is a great, fun way to help bring us one step closer to achieving our mission."
