American Lung Association’s Fight For Air Climb

The American Lung Association is holding its Fight For Air Climb fundraiser at One Biscayne Tower:  2 S Biscayne Blvd. Miami on March 7 at 8 a.m.

The goal of this fundraiser is to support friends and loved ones who suffer from lung diseases like asthma and lung cancer and raise funds for clean air and lung disease research, education and advocacy.

Firefighters from Metro-Dade, Miami Dade Fire Rescue, and other neighboring counties will be showing their support at the end of the race by climbing the 38 flights in full firefighter gear – helmet, hood, pants, coat, gloves, boots and air pack – weighing over 45 pounds.  Firefighters have an increased risk for lung disease from the exposure to gases, chemicals and smoke in the line of duty.

Fight For Air climbers can participate individually or as a team.  Registration is $35 per participant and includes a $100 fundraising minimum.
