This morning, over 400 Clevelanders raised more than $100,000 in the American Lung Association in Ohio’s iconic Fight For Air Climb. The 2022 Cleveland Climb supported over 1.7 million Ohioans living with lung disease.
The Cleveland Fight For Air Climb continued for the second consecutive year as an outdoor climb challenge. Participants climbed the stadium stairs totaling 1,190 stairs. All to raise awareness and money to fight lung disease through research, education and advocacy.
“We are so grateful to everyone in our community for coming together to support lung health. We are proud that funds raised will help our ongoing efforts to end lung cancer and lung disease,” said Kim Covey, executive director of the Lung Association.
Dozens participated in the Firefighters and First Responders Climb and everyone helped support the fundraising goal.
The Lung Association looks forward to next year’s Climb event and continuing its commitment to improving lung health and preventing lung disease.
