American Lung Association's Fight for Air Climb
The Frost Bank Tower, 401 Congress | Austin TX
Saturday, April 26th, 2014
7:30 am - 1 pm
Fight for Air Climbs are the American Lung Association’s most unique fundraisers. Climbs take place in prominent skyscrapers, stadiums or arenas and involve walking, running or racing up hundreds of steps. Sometimes called a "vertical road race", teams and individual participants can use the event as a fitness target, as a race, or as a great way to be active and meet new friends. We know a lot about lung disease, but there is so much we don't know. Your participation will raise the funds necessary to provide lifesaving education, research and advocacy so we can beat lung disease and soon find a cure.
Registration is only $15 until November 15th and then goes up to $25. There is a minimum fundraising requirement of $100. This is a family friendly event as we will have lots of activities for everyone.
