Iconic Fight For Air Climb Heads Outdoors to Exploria Stadium

Stair climb event to raise money to end lung disease, COVID-19

Today, the American Lung Association in Florida announced that it will host the iconic Fight For Air Climb event outdoors for the first time at Exploria Stadium on March 27. 

This is the 13th year of the Fight For Air Climb in Orlando. The event typically takes place in the stairwells of the City National Bank Building but was reimagined as an outdoor climb challenge for the safety of participants, volunteers and staff. The organization is also offering a “Climb Your Way” option for those who can’t make it to the physical event. 

“Without missing a beat, we are headed outdoors, onward and upward for our legacy Fight For Air Climb event,” said Janelle Hom, executive director of the Lung Association. “During this time, it is more important than ever to support lung health, so on March 27, we are climbing to bring an end COVID-19, lung cancer and lung disease, and ensure healthy air for all.”

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/Orlando
