On July 28th, hundreds of people will huff and puff their way up and down the stairs in the North Charleston Coliseum by participating in the Fight for Air Climb and Ultra Climb.

Fight for Air Climbs are unique fundraising events for the American Lung Association. They usually happen in prominent skyscrapers, stadiums or arenas and involve climbing multiple steps. Sometimes called a "vertical road race", teams and individual participants can use the event as a fitness target, as a race, with you challenging yourself or you racing against other people, or as a great way to be active and meet new friends. American Lung Association Climbs are also a wonderful way to support someone who has lung disease or as a memorial to someone who has passed away.

´╗┐The registration fee is $25 per person and the additional fundraising minimum is $100 per person for Air Climb and $150 for the Ultra Climber. There are usually a limited number of spots available in each climb, so be sure to sign up early.

For registration information, please call (843) 556-8451.
