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, you are making the commitment to fight lung disease so everyone can breathe easier- including you!
Families, individuals and teams join together to tackle Hersheypark Stadium. Climbers go at their own pace up and down approximately 2,000 steps at the historic outside stadium. Climbers can run fast, run slow or walk - the challenge is yours.
Please join the thousands of individuals across the nation who believe in the cause and will climb in their communities as well.
You can get involved by:
- Registering as a Team Captain
- Joining an existing Team as a new registrant
