The Fight For Air Climb is one of the signature fundraising events of the American Lung Association. The Climbs are held in prominent skyscrapers and other buildings across the country, giving participants the opportunity to join together with friends, family and co-workers as they climb the stairs of the building to the top! The Climb has been taking place across the U.S. for more than a decade and has raised more than $53 million to support the mission of the American Lung Association.
More than 26,000 participants from 44 Climb events across the country came together last year to raise more than $7.4 million. This year, you can raise money to support research, patient education and advocacy efforts.
The Jacksonville Fight For Air Climb is held annually at the Bank of America Tower in downtown Jacksonville. It is a vertical race up 713 steps to the 36th floor of the tower. Whether you are climbing as a part of a healthy lifestyle, to beat your previous time or in honor of all those who are affected by lung disease, you will achieve a sense of personal accomplishment as you reach the top of the building and the height of your fundraising potential. Every step you take moves us forward in our fight for healthy lungs and clean air. To learn more, donate or register, visit us at ClimbJAX.org
