Fight For Air Climb Moves to Nissan Stadium this Fall

Stair climb event benefits the Lung Association, October 2

Today, the American Lung Association in Tennessee announced that it will host its first-ever Fight For Air Climb at Nissan Stadium on October 2 at 8AM.  

“We’re excited to have reimagined this iconic event and move it to Nissan Stadium,” said Holly Cheatham, Development Manager of the Lung Association. “As you can imagine, the stairs at Nissan Stadium are much different than the stairwells of the 505 building where Climb Nashville is typically held.”

“We’re especially proud of the local support we continue to receive from local partners, like Messer, Piedmont Natural Gas, StorPlace and the Nashville Fire Department,” she said. “Money raised at the Fight For Air Climb will fund the Lung Association’s mission to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease. 89 cents of every dollar raised will go to life-saving research, advocacy and local programs right here Tennessee.”

Registration is now open for the event, which invites individuals, families, groups of friends, corporate teams and first responders to climb Nissan Stadium, totaling 2,817 stairs. For those that want an extra challenge, a Titan Challenge is available at 6,139 stairs and equates to about 3 miles. Additionally, a Firefighter and First Responders Challenge is available at 3,322. 

The safety of participants, staff and volunteers is always our number one priority, so we are continually monitoring local conditions that might affect the Climb. Everyone is encouraged to check our Climb website for the most up-to-date information leading up to the event.

Registration for the Fight For Air Climb is $35 (which includes a $100 fundraising minimum) and $35 for the Titan Challenge (which includes a $250 fundraising minimum). For more information, and to register, visit ClimbNashville.org.
