Fight for Air Climb: February 23rd

Think you can climb 597 stairs? Here’s your chance to find out!

On Saturday morning, February 23rd, join hundreds of climbers at One Financial Plaza for the Fight for Air Climb, benefiting the American Lung Association. When you register, you’ll get a bib and a pre-assigned start time for your race up the staircase to the 29th floor. The advance registration fee is $35, and on-site registration costs $50. All climbers must meet a $100 fundraising minimum.

This is a competitive race, with awards going to the top male/female climbers and firefighters, health professionals, and law enforcement officers. Make sure that you’re in good company! At the after-party at Ri-Ra Irish Pub, awards will be given to the largest team and the fastest team, cross fit team, law enforcement team and fire department team. After the fundraising deadline in March, awards will be given to the highest fundraising individual and highest fundraising team per capita as well.
