The VUE Announces Annual Fight for Air Climb to Benefit the ALA
March 15, 2018 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsThe VUE, Charlotte's premier luxury apartment community, will host its annual Fight for Air Climb on March 24, 2018. This annual event is a fundraiser for the American Lung Association, and it invites participants to climb the tower's 50 floors and 883 steps to make a difference for those around the world who are impacted by lung disease.
As the tallest building in the region, The VUE is the logical place to host this exciting fundraising event. The VUE staff is pleased to be able to be the venue that supports the American Lung Association, and aims to make the climb an exciting day for residents and visiting climbers alike.
The Fight for Air Climb is a race upwards, rather than through the streets of Charlotte. Participants climb to the top of the tallest skyscraper between New York and Miami. While training for the climb, participants will raise money to support the American Lung Association. The Fight for Air Climb is one of the best fundraisers for the American Lung Association, and there are 52 events held across the country each year.
Each participant in The Fight for Air Climb, whether climbing as an individual or as part of a team, has a minimum $100 that they must raise to participate. Many raise far more than the minimum as they prepare for the climb, and matching gifts help increase these donations even more. The climb starts with Elite Climbers at 7:00 am, followed by general climbers and firefighters. A variety of awards for both athleticism and fundraising will be delivered at the end of the day.
Currently, participants in the climb have raised almost $40,000, putting the group at 44% of its $90,000 goal for this particular climb. Those interested in climbing still have time to register as individuals or teams.
