South Florida Organizations Come Together to Support Lung Health, COVID-19 Relief

Today, the American Lung Association in Florida is recognizing several local organizations that are investing in lung health and supporting the COVID-19 Action Initiative by sponsoring the Fight For Air Climb.

The Fight For Air Climb typically takes place in the stairwells of the One Biscayne Tower but was reimagined as an outdoor climb challenge for the safety of participants, volunteers and staff. For the event on March 6, participants will climb 915 stairs throughout Hard Rock Stadium. The organization is also offering a “Climb Your Way” option for those who can’t make it to the physical event. 

“Fighting to end lung disease must be a collaborative effort,” said Chrissy Cohen, the executive director for the Lung Association. “It is humbling to see all of these local businesses come together to support our mission of ending lung disease, help us fund educational programs to assist people with lung disease and advocate for clean air for all.”

Fight For Air Climb supporters include: 

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. The initiative works with public and private entities to increase research collaboration and develop new vaccines, detection tests and treatment therapies.

Registration for the Fight For Air Climb is $35 and includes a $100 fundraising minimum. For more information, and to register, visit FightForAirClimb.org/Miami. 

Your safety is always our number one priority. We are continually monitoring local conditions that might affect your Climb. Check your local Climb website for the most up-to-date information.
