"FIGHT FOR AIR" STAIR CLIMB DRAWING NEAR AS COMMUNITY CHALLENGE HEATING UP AS TEAM PARTICIPATION GROWSApril 15th is more than just tax day; it is your chance to participate in an event that will make you feel great! The American Lung Association in Nevada and Silver Legacy Resort Casino presents the annual Fight For Air “vertical road race” to raise awareness and funds for clean air and lung health. Having raised $33,541, by the 45 teams already formed, toward their $50,000 goal, it is shaping up to be another successful event…but we need your help.
Get in on the fun and adventure of climbing all 36 flights of stairs at Silver Legacy-Northern Nevada’s tallest building-with a team of three or more to help reach this worthy goal. With lots of great prizes for top finisher, top fundraiser and more!
Anyone can participate in this fun, challenging event. It all begins Sunday, April 15 at 9:00am on the corner of 4th and Sierra Streets and climbing begins promptly at 10:00. Registration for the climb is $25 and participants are asked to commit to raising an additional $75. Prizes and awards will be awarded to the fastest participants and the top fundraisers. Proceeds raised from this event help support community based lung health programs such as Teens Against Tobacco Use and Open Airways for Schools.
New this year is special challenges for all participants. The “Fight like a Firefighter Challenge” is your chance to compete with local fire fighter heroes while wearing an additional 30 pounds of weight. The “Tough Enough for Two Challenge” is for participants who opt to scale the 36 floors and promptly return to the start line and ascend a second time. Top finishers for both challenges win special grand prizes.
