Get involved in the American Lung Association's most unique fundraiser!
This winter season join the American Lung Association at their Fight for Air Climb event on Saturday, February 1st. This event involves climbs that take place in prominent skyscrapers, stadiums or arenas and involve walking, running, or racing up hundreds of steps. Your participation in this event will raise the funds necessary to provide lifesaving education about lung disease, as well as research and advocacy so that a cure can soon be found. All participants are required to raise a minimum of $100, due by the event day.
Event registration will take place at BNY Mellon Center at 1 Boston Place, 201 Washington Street, Boston, MA. Registration and check-in opens at 7:15am, and the first climber takes off at 8am. It is suggested that all climbers arrive 30-45 minutes prior to their scheduled start to handle all check-in matters and stretch. For everyone's safety, water is prohibited on the stairs and the carrying of anyone while climbing is not permitted.
