Jacksonville Residents Step Up to Raise $114,000 at Fight For Air Climb

Saturday, more than 300 people participated in the American Lung Association in Jacksonville’s Fight For Air Climb at TIAA Bank Field. The event raised more than $114,000 to fund the Lung Association’s efforts to end lung disease and support the organization’s COVID-19 Action Initiative.

During the event, participants climbed more than 1,600 stairs throughout TIAA Bank Field. The organization also offered a “Climb Your Way” option for those who couldn’t make it to the physical event.

“Once again, this event proved to be as moving as it was rewarding for all who participated, young and old alike,” said Cindy Springer, Senior Manager of Development 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:
300 registered participants;
41 teams; and
$114,000 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. The COVID-19 Action Initiative is a $25 million investment to address COVID-19 and protect against future respiratory virus pandemics.
