How do my donations help?
With the generous support of people like you, the American Lung Association in Pennsylvania saves lives by fighting for healthy lungs and healthy air. Today, our fight is more important than ever. Eighty-one cents of every dollar raised by our organization goes directly to education, research and advocacy.
WHAT IS FIGHT FOR AIR CLIMB?
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. 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. 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.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I BE THERE?
Climbing begins at 9:00am. Climbers will recieve an email with an appoximate start time a few days before the event. We encourage climbers to arrive at One Oxford Centre at least one hour before that start time, giving enough time to park, check-in, and stretch.
Where should I park?
There are three parking garages near One Oxford Centre.
1) One Oxford Centre garage- directly connected to the climb building. Accepts cash only ($5).
2) Macy's Parking garage - connected to the climb building by the skywalk-way. Accepts cash and card ($5).
3) Blvd. of the Allies garage - next door to One Oxford Centre. Accepts cash and card ($5).
What is a team captain?
Being a team captain is easy. Captains gather together a few friends or family members and encourage them to participate in the event together. Each team captain helps to coordinate the online registration of these friends as well as setting a goal for the team overall. Team Captains should encourage their participants to personalize their fundraising pages, send e-mails to other friends and family, hit their overall goals, show up to the event and have a great time. Some team captains organize gatherings before or after the climb for their team members, but this is not required. Sometimes the team captain serves as a representative at the annual event kickoff luncheon. In short, we need help to rally the troops and the best people for the job are always our team captains.
