Today, Wednesday, January 11 is National Take the Stairs Day, and the American Lung Association in Massachusetts is challenging people in Boston to take the first steps towards healthier habits in 2023 by taking the stairs, and then support lung health by registering for the Fight For Air Climb at One Boston Place.
National Take the Stairs Day is an annual observance on the second Wednesday of January that gives Americans an opportunity to adopt healthy routines like taking the stairs. Stair climbing is a great way to burn calories but is also a simple way to improve your overall health.
“Many people make resolutions to adopt healthier habits in the New Year, so National Take the Stairs Day is a fantastic way to kick off those goals as well as exercise your lungs! We would also like to invite Massachusetts residents to take it a step further and join us for our Fight For air Climb at One Boston Place on May 6,” said Ashley Carrier, Executive Director for the Lung Association.
The American Lung Association is celebrating National Take the Stairs Day by offering a discounted online registration fee for the Fight For Air Climb Boston today through May 1.
Participants of the Fight For Air Climb will climb 789 stairs at One Boston Place on May6th, alongside firefighters, first responders and families and individuals with lung disease. Joining the Fight For Air Climb supports the work of the Lung Association to defeat lung cancer, champion clean air for all, improve the quality of life for those living with lung disease and their families, and create a tobacco-free future.
The American Lung Association is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through education, advocacy and research.
