The Fight For Air Climb is one of the signature fundraising events of the American Lung Association. The Climbs are held in prominent skyscrapers and other buildings across the country, giving participants the opportunity to join together with friends, family and co-workers as they climb the stairs of the building to the top! The Climb has been taking place for more than a decade and has raised more than $40 million to support the mission of the American Lung Association.
This is one of those events where you really want to help out a great cause, but….. you don’t want to climb 534 stairs!
Volunteer with RYP and you can help … without the climb! We will be distributing water, checking in registrants, monitoring participant progress and doing other tasks as needed.
The sign up deadline is October 14th and you can register by going to the Rochester Climb website: http://action.lung.org/rochesterclimb and choosing “Participate as a Volunteer” in the drop-down Register menu. If you would rather register over the phone, please call the event manager at 585-666-1402. Please make sure to indicate that you are an RYP member!
Just so you are aware of the change, this year’s event is taking place at The Metropolitan (1 S Clinton Ave, Rochester, NY 14604) this year, which offers a slightly taller climb up 534 stairs. Because the building is larger, we need more volunteers this year!
