Last Sunday, three colleagues and I participated in the Fight for Air Climb Detroit. Despite injuries and minimal training, we all managed to climb the 70 floors (1000+ steps) without too much strain. My finishing time was 18:10. It was a great event and we managed to raise $435 to support the American Lung Association. Thanks to those who generously contributed to support our effort.

On March 4, some colleagues and I will participate in the 2012 Fight for Air Climb in Detroit. The event will take place at the Renaissance Center, which I was surprised to learn is the tallest building in Michigan. The timed climb will cover 70 flights of stairs for a total of 1,035 steps! Sounds serious, no?
I’m really looking forward to this “vertical road race.” The Fight for Air Climb is a sporting event that serves as a fundraiser for the American Lung Association. So, in addition to getting some good exercise, we can raise funds to support important research, advocacy and education towards beating lung disease. Also, it’s a great team building exercise. I only wish we could recruit more of our colleagues!
