This morning, more than 500 people raised over $20,000 at the American Lung Association in Texas’ Fight For Air Climb at TSU-Bobcat Stadium.
The Fight For Air Climb today raised awareness and funds to support the 3 million Texans living with lung disease. Funds raised help end lung disease and support the Lung Association's efforts through research, education and advocacy.
“We are very grateful to everyone that came out to support lung health and so proud of the funds raised,” said Charlotte Maffia, Executive Director, Lung Association in Texas. “Thanks to their determination we raised more than $20,000 to help ongoing efforts to end lung cancer and lung disease.”
The Lung Association looks forward to next year climbing event and continuing its commitment to improving lung health and preventing lung disease.
