Orlando Residents Raise $104,000 at 16th Annual Fight For Air Climb

Today, more than 300 people participated in the American Lung Association in Florida's Fight for Air Climb at the City National Bank Building. The event raised more than $104,000 to fund the Lung Association's efforts to end lung disease. 

This was the 16th year of the Fight For Air Climb. Climbers returned home to the original event location at the City National Bank Building, formerly the Bank of America Center where participants climbed 25 flights, 512 steps.   

The inclusion of firefighters and first responders makes this event unique. This year, the Lung Association featured the Austin Duran Firefighter Challenge, honoring our first responders impacted by lung disease.

“Once again, this event proved to be as moving as it was rewarding for all who participated, young and old alike,” said Janelle Hom, 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 and lung cancer.”

In total, the Orlando Fight For Air Climb resulted in:
  • 300 registered participants plus spectators, sponsors and volunteers;
  • 34 teams; and
  • $104,000 raised and counting!

Funds raised from the Fight For Air Climb, support the mission of the American Lung Association and their efforts to defeat lung cancer, champion clean air, improve the quality of life for those with lung disease and their families, and to create a tobacco-free future.
