Fight for Air Climb: Race Up Boston Place Announces Boston Private as Its Presenting Sponsor for the Annual Event

Boston Private to Stand as Presenting Sponsor for the American Lung Association’s Fight for Air Climb for the Next Two Years

(December 8, 2015) -

The American Lung Association’s Fight for Air Climb: Race Up Boston Place is proud to announce Boston Private as its presenting sponsor for the 2016 and 2017 events. The 11th annual Fight for Air Climb will be held on Saturday, February 6, 2016 at One Boston Place and will welcome more than 1000 climbers who will help achieve the $550,000 event fundraising goal.  In addition to elite athletes and teams climbing in honor of friends and family affected by lung disease, nearly 600 firefighters are expected to participate, most of whom will tackle the 789 steps in full gear.   Funds raised will support the American Lung Association’s mission: to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through research, education, and advocacy.

“The Lung Association is honored to partner with Boston Private for both our 2016 and 2017 Fight for Air Climbs in Boston,” said Jeff Seyler, President & CEO of the American Lung Association of the Northeast. “We are confident that our collaboration with Boston Private will ensure the continued success of the Fight for Air Climb.  We invite anyone who has ever thought about climbing to join us for the 11th annual Boston Fight for Air Climb and enjoy an experience that is not only challenging and memorable, but that will also make a significant impact in the fight for healthy air and lungs.  We’re also incredibly grateful to One Boston Place for hosting us each year since the Climb’s inception.”

“The American Lung Association has long been the voice for promoting lung health and helping Americans breathe easier, and their Fight for Air Climb initiative has become an amazing way for people and businesses alike to show their support in the fight against lung disease,” said George Schwartz, President at Boston Private. “It’s a cause that has resonated at Boston Private, with a team of 20 employees participating last year.

This year, we are honored to partner with the Lung Association as the presenting sponsor of Boston’s Fight for Air Climb. It is our hope to see even more people take to the stairs on February 6, 2016, to help make a positive impact in the lives of those affected by lung disease.”
Boston Private is a leading wealth management and private banking company, headquartered in Boston and serving clients from 34 offices in Massachusetts, California, Florida, Wisconsin, Georgia and Texas.

The Lung Association’s Fight for Air Climbs are open to participants of all ages and abilities, from elite athletes to novice stair climbers. Participants can choose to race, run, or walk up the stairs.
