Feb. 17: It's Almost Time For The 6th Annual Fight For Air Climb


Are you ready to climb for a cause? The American Lung Association in Tennessee is hosting its annual Fight for Air Climb on Saturday, February 17th at 8:00am.

This fun obstacle challenges you to climb the 29 floors, or 638 steps inside the Fifth Third Center in downtown Nashville. This event attracts athletes of all levels, firefighters and anyone interested in helping us raise awareness and funds for lung health.

Over 33 million Americans are currently living with lung disease. Young or old, smoker or not, lung disease can happen to anyone at any time. We invite the Nashville community to join us in our fight against lung disease as we climb for those who can't.

Breakfast and snacks provided by Whole Foods and Starbucks will be available for all climbers, plus an after party hosted by Blackstone Brewery.Who wouldn't want a free beer after a powerful accomplishment?

The last day to sign up to climb is Sunday, February 11th. Registration currently is $35 with a required $100 fundraising minimum to climb by February 17th. Register now at:

We invite you to step up to the challenge, to climb for the 33 million effected by lung disease. For more information, log on to
