American Lung Association’s Fight For Air Climb In Austin

“We climb for those fighting for air. We climb for our friends and loved ones who suffer from lung cancer, the leading cancer killer.” On May 30, individuals and teams will gather at the Frost Bank Tower for the Fight For Air Climb. This annual event is one of the most unique fundraisers that the American Lung Association holds.

The event takes place in more than 60 cities across the state.  Last year, the climbs raised more than $7 million to help provide lifesaving education, research and advocacy to beat lung disease and find a cure.
