Today, Wednesday, January 11 is National Take the Stairs Day, and the American Lung Association in Rhode Island is challenging people in Providence 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 Omni Providence Hotel.
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 Rhode Island residents to take it a step further and join us for our Fight For air Climb at Omni Providence Hotel on April 22,” said Daniel Bowler, Executive Director for the Lung Association.
The American Lung Association is celebrating National Take the Stairs Day by offering a discounted online registration fee of $25 for the Fight For Air Climb Providence. The early-bird discount will end at the close of National Take the Stairs Day.
Participants of the Fight For Air Climb will climb 348 stairs at Omni Providence Hotel on April 22nd, 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. The work of the American Lung Association is focused on four strategic imperatives: to defeat lung cancer; to champion clean air for all; to improve the quality of life for those with lung disease and their families; and to create a tobacco-free future.
