Put on by Hood to Coast in an effort to raise money and awareness for the American Lung Association, participants’ stair step their way up to the 40th floor of the building, which is 525 steps, overlooking gorgeous downtown.

You have the opportunity to do 40, 80, 120, 160 or 200 flights of stairs. The Fight for Air Climb helps in the fight against lung disease. Each participant has a minimum of $100 fundraising goal to participate in the race which goes to American Lung Association.
