Last Chance for Oak Brook Area Residents to Save on Unique Challenge

Early bird registration for 2014 Fight for Air Climb ends December 8th

CHICAGO (December 3, 2013)

More than one thousand people will climb 31 floors and 680 steps to the top of the suburbs’ tallest building on February 9 as part of the American Lung Association in Greater Chicago’s 2014 Fight for Air Climb. Some will just have to pay more to participate unless they register by this Sunday, December 8th. That’s when the early bird registration closes for the event; registration is $15 before Sunday and $25 after. General details for the event are below and more information to come.

WHO: More than a thousand of Oak Brook area residents and Illinoisans from across the state.

WHAT: The 2014 Fight for Air Climb is a unique fundraising event for the American Lung Association in Greater Chicago. It’s a stair climb of the Oakbrook Terrace Tower; the tallest building in the suburbs.

WHERE: The Oakbrook Terrace Tower at One Tower Lane, Oakbrook Terrace, IL 60181.

WHEN: Sunday, February 9th; 8 AM.

WHY: Often referred to as a "vertical road race," participating in the Fight for Air Climb empowers individuals to invest in their own personal health and fitness. They’re not just climbing up stairs, they’re fighting for an end to lung disease. Climbers help improve the lives of patients across the country and locally in Illinois. Ninety cents of every dollar raised goes directly to education, research and advocacy.

REGISTRATION: There are four ways to participate; by starting a team, joining a team, joining as an individual or volunteering. Registration is open online at FightForAirClimb.org or by calling 312-781-1100.
