“Once again, this event proved to be as moving as it was rewarding for all who participated, young and old alike,” said Jennifer Hall, Executive Director for the Lung Association. “Thank you to all of our participants, volunteers, and sponsors who came together to make a difference in the lives of people facing lung disease, lung cancer, and COVID-19.”

In total, the Charlotte Fight For Air Climb resulted in:

  • 254 registered participants;

  • $104,000 raised and counting!

Money raised at the Fight For Air Climb will fund the Lung Association’s efforts to end lung cancer and lung disease, as well as support the organization’s COVID-19 Action Initiative.
