WHAT: Fight for Air Climbs are unique fundraising events for the American Lung Association. They usually happen in prominent skyscrapers, stadiums or arenas and involve climbing multiple steps and flights of stairs. Sometimes called a “vertical road race”, teams and individual participants can use the event as a fitness target, as a race, with you challenging yourself or you racing against other people, or as a great way to be active and meet new friends.  Stairclimbs are great cross training events for athletes who can not train outdoors in the winter.  Novice and expert athletes of all ages are welcome to climb.  We know a lot about lung disease, but there is so much we don’t know. Your participation will raise the funds necessary to provide life saving education, research and advocacy so we can beat lung disease and soon find a cure.

WHEN: Sunday, March 4 2012

WHERE: Renaissance Center, Detroit, MI

WHY: To help fight lung disease, have fun and get a good workout in!
