Event Information

Each year, too many lives are lost to lung disease and this is your chance to climb, raise money and make an impact in their honor. By joining the Fight for Air Climb Atlanta, you are making the commitment to fight lung disease so everyone can breathe easier- including you!

Event Overview
It's more than a walk. It's more than a run. It's a unique challenge, an adventure...an accomplishment! It's a chance to go vertical with hundreds of participants in the American Lung Association's 2013 Fight For Air Climb Atlanta. Tackle 52 floors on April 6th in Atlanta's largest vertical competition. Push your legs and lungs to their fullest potential and walk away with a newfound respect for your lungs. Go by yourself, with a friend, or form a team for the challenge! You can sprint, jog, walk or crawl...any way you can get up the stairs, (and you get to take the elevator down)!

Families, individuals, firefighters and teams join together in a climb to the top of One Ninety One Peachtree Tower in downtown Atlanta to raise awareness for the 35 million Americans who suffer from asthma. Participants work together to fundraise. All funds raised at this event stay in Georgia and goes to benefit research, education and advocacy to clean the air we breathe and help fight lung disease!

Please join the thousands of individuals across the nation who believe in the cause and will climb in their communities as well. Atlanta's Climb is expected to have over 600 participants this year and a HUGE, amazing post-event block party outside after the event! We’ll have tons of food, beverages, music, awards, T-shirts and raffle prizes after the event at the post-climb Expo.

Electronic Timing
The event will be chip timed using the popular ChronoTrack D-Tag timing system and the services of Racing Solutions. Each individual will need to wear a D-Tag to be in the Overall or Team results and be eligible for Overall, age-group and Team awards. Since the event is electronically timed, teams do not have to all start together! We will stagger individuals for safety concerns and so the stairwells will never be overcrowded.

There will be water available before and after the Climb and water stops approximately every 5 floors. Participants are encouraged to stay hydrated and to take advantage of using the water stops to catch their breath. Although some individuals are going for the fastest time, there is no pressure to run or race to the top! You can walk and take breaks a long the way!

  • Registering as a Team Captain
  • Joining an existing Team as a new registrant
  •  Signing up as an individual registrant
  •  Sponsoring the event
