About the Climb - Event Overview
The Anthem Fight for Air Climb, formerly Run the Republic, gives you the opportunity to say you've climbed the tallest building in the Rocky Mountain West - the Republic Plaza in downtown Denver.
Usually, the building's stairwell is closed to the public, but we'll unchain the doors and let you climb all the way to the 53rd floor and then take the elevator back down to the lobby for food, interactive booths and fun. But don't worry, because the climb starts in the basement you will be taking on the challenge of a 56 story stair climb!
The Anthem Fight for Air Climb raises funds for lung health issues that are more critical now than ever before. Lung disease is the third leading cause of death in the United States. While the death rates of cancer and heart disease are decreasing, deaths from lung disease are increasing at an alarming rate.
