Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
February 9, 2013 will mark the third annual Fight For Air Climb: NYC event at One Penn Plaza, and we want YOU there! This fundraising "vertical marathon" will put the physical strength, stamina, and lungpower of each participant to the test by allowing climbers to race, run, or walk up One Penn’s 55-floor stairwell. Firefighters compete in the challenge in full gear, and an after party/ award ceremony will follow the event to celebrate top times and high fundraisers. Proceeds raised will support lung disease research, education, advocacy, and programs and services of the American Lung Association.
We are currently seeking volunteers to join the festivities and lend a helping hand. At present time, we are anticipating approximately 450 participants for the event, and therefore need about 50 volunteers to contribute services from 7:30AM- 2:00PM. Duties will include registration assistance, cheerleaders and route guides, vendor assistance, etc. All volunteers are able to receive community service recognition for their hard work, and will receive a free t-shirt and entry into the event’s after party! So round up your friends and family members; Come join the American Lung Association and be a part of this unique opportunity.
