HAPPY NEW YEAR!

What's new for 2012?
Below are a few of the many additions to this year's Fight for Air Climb.  We hope this list will continue to grow as the event quickly approaches...

Taller Building
Last year, close to 300 participants climbed up 37 floors (722 steps) of The Gulf Tower.  This year, we are expecting over 500 climbers to conquer 45 floors, equaling 897 steps, of One Oxford Centre! (Located in downtown Pittsburgh - 301 Grant Street, Pgh, PA 15219) 

Later Start Time
Last year climbing began at 8:30AM.  This year climbing will begin at 9:00AM.  However, please arrive at least one hour before your start time to give ample time for check-in, stretching, gear check, etc.  Start time will be given out approximately one week before the event.

Kick Off Event
Last year we held a Karaoke Saturday Night Event that helped raised an additional $500 in the fight against lung disease.  This year we will be holding a Happy Hour Event in February.  The official announcement and event details will be announced next week (see it on facebook first!). We hope to see you there!

Post Event Celebration
The Post Event Celebration was a new addition to the event last year.  Participants, family, and friends, were welcome to stick around after the event for complementary food, drinks, music, and more.  We will be holding the Post Event Celebration again this year! It will take place in the One Oxford Centre lobby.  We're always looking for in-kind donations so if you would like to donate food or beverages for the event and get some wonderful exposure for your restaurant or business, please contact Tiffany at TVillalba@lunginfo.org.
