Today, the American Lung Association launched its 2022 Fight For Air Climb Firefighter Calendar to honor local heroes and support its vision of a world free of lung disease. The second annual calendar features the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Fight For Air Climb team.
Every year, thousands of firefighters and first responders race up hundreds of stairs during American Lung Association Fight For Air Climbs in more than 40 cities nationwide. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office team was selected as one of the top first responder teams nationwide. They have participated for eight years and raised $25,581 for the Lung Association.
“The Fight for Air Climb is one of our favorite events of the year,” said Sheriff John Mina. “It’s a great cause benefiting the American Lung Association, and it brings out some good-natured competition between law enforcement and firefighters.”
“First responders are not only out there saving lives every day, but they also fundraise and participate in events like our Fight For Air Climb in their free time,” said Janelle Hom, executive director of the Lung Association. “We are amazed by their daily sacrifice and are honored that the Orange County Sheriff’s Office team, as well as so many other local heroes participate in our event.”
The 2022 calendar will feature photos of our top fundraising firefighters and first responders at their local Fight For Air Climbs. It also includes fire safety tips, statistics on how fires affect our lung health and tips for your Fight For Air Climb. All proceeds will support the American Lung Association’s mission to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through education, advocacy and research.
