The Fight for Air Climb is a unique athletic and fundraising challenge held at the Promenade II building in Atlanta where participants race 40 floors to the top. The 12th Annual Climb Atlanta will attract more than 250 firefighters climbing in full gear and over 600 non-firefighters who are motivated and passionate about the cause, as well as enjoy new and challenging athletic events. Climbers with or affected by lung disease unite with friends, family and co-workers for a memorable experience and an opportunity to fundraise for a meaningful cause.
While participants are training and preparing for their climb, over 100 volunteers are needed to plan for the event, setup the event, and work the event including cleanup afterwards.
By participating, you will work hard and have fun, meet new friends, witness the amazing accomplishment of participants reaching their destination, the 40th floor, and support an organization that works to promote healthy lungs and clean air.
