    Fight For Air Climb

    The American Lung Association is hosting its inaugural Fight for Air Climb. The Fight for Air Climb is a unique event in which individuals and teams race, run or walk up the 638 stairs to the observation floor of the Tennessee Tower. Create a team of friends, family or co-workers and compete together. Every step you take and every dollar you help raise in the Fight For Air Climb helps the millions of people who are affected by lung disease.

    Lung disease affects us all. Whether you have a sister with lung cancer, a best friend with COPD, a child with asthma, or someone who enjoys smoke-free public spaces – healthy lungs and clean air are priorities for everyone.

    Two options are open to Climbers: The Standard Climb and the First Responders Challenge.

    Standard Climb - A timed race against other climbers to take on the Snodgrass Tennessee Tower. Climb all the way to the 28th floor by climbing 638 stairs. This Climb is recommended for racers, serious climbers, runners, walkers and families.

    First Responders Challenge - Timed challenge to the 28th floor for Firefighter, Police, EMS, EMT or Armed Forces officers wanting to compete. Climb in full uniform and/or gear, or in bunk/department/branch shirts to designate what type of first responder you are. No firearms will be allowed into the building by any participant. All Firefighters are encouraged to take on the climb to the 28th floor wearing full structural firefighting personal protective equipment which meets current NFPA standards. This includes: Boots, turnout coat and pants, helmet, gloves, and SCBA harness with air cylinder (sorry, no axes allowed). SCBA face pieces and hoods do not need to be worn. Firefighters will not be on air.

    Please join us in the Fight For Air!
