The American Lung Association in Ohio’s Fight For Air Climb will again take place at the iconic Key Tower in downtown Cleveland. The event will take place on February 23, 2020.
Standing at 57 floors, Key Tower is the tallest building in Ohio and the second tallest building between New York City and Chicago. The art deco-inspired building was completed in 1991, houses professional office space and is connected to the Cleveland Marriott at Key Tower. This will be the second year that Key Tower has been the site for the Fight For Air Climb. In just the first year, the Lung Association has raised almost $100,000 to support lung health in Ohio.
“Key Tower has been a tremendous supporter of the American Lung Association. Climbers come from all over the U.S. to experience climbing in such an iconic and beautiful building. There is no better place for us to hold our signature event, the Fight For Air Climb,” said Kim Covey, the executive director of the Lung Association. “This event helps fund life-saving lung cancer research, critical local programs for people who live with lung disease, and resources to help residents quit smoking. Key Tower and the Cleveland Marriott at Key Tower are both vital partners in helping us continue our important programing in Ohio.”
The Fight For Air Climb invites individuals, families, groups of friends, corporate teams and first responders to race up the stairs of Key Tower, a total of 58 floors, 1,349 steps.
