Springfield Climbers Raise $75K at Wyndham City Centre

Nearly 200 participate in Lung Association event to help find cure for lung disease

This morning, 179 people raised $75,000 at the 2024 Fight For Air Climb Springfield, locally presented by CEFCU. The event supports more than 1.4 million people living with lung disease in Illinois.

Climbers of all skill levels tackled 32 floors at Wyndham City Centre to raise awareness and money to fight lung disease through research, education, and advocacy.

“Thanks to the determination of our supporters and climbers we raised $75,000 to help ongoing efforts to end lung cancer and lung disease in Illinois,” said Brett Schuette, executive director, American Lung Association. “We are very grateful to everyone that came out to support lung health and so proud of the funds raised.”

The Lung Association looks forward to next year’s Climb event and continuing its commitment to improving lung health and preventing lung disease.
