The American Lung Association's ultimate goal is to eradicate lung disease. Until then, they are determined to provide resources for those who are affected by lung disease.

The Lung Association hosts events throughout the year to help raise funds to continue their fight: the Lung Force Walk, the 'jeep jaunt', and the Fight for Air Climb.

Set for May 16th of this year, the Fight for Air Climb is your chance to gather friends and family to form a team (or go solo) and head to New Orleans to climb for the cause.

From the American Lung Association:

Skip the elevator and take the stairs with the American Lung Association’s Fight For Air Climb. Whether you walk, run or race up hundreds of stairs, climb to the top of a skyscraper for the challenge, fun, and camaraderie, and for a world free of lung disease. Firefighters, grandmothers and everyone in between can join. Register today at!

Get registered today, and we'll see you in New Orleans.
