Have you or somebody you know ever quit smoking? Have you or somebody you know suffered from lung diseases like lung cancer or asthma? Have you or somebody you know been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic?
If you want to support a non-profit which fights these fronts and you also want a great workout inside Soldier Field, then consider attending or donating to the Fight for Air Climb next Saturday June 19th. The annual event is hosted by the American Lung Association, whose mission statement reads:
We are focused on defeating lung cancer, creating a tobacco-free future, championing clean air for all and improving the quality of life for those with lung disease and their families.
The climb itself takes participants through the stadium stands of Soldier Field, home of your favorite monsters, the Chicago Bears. There are 2 route options, a short 1,279 step lap around the stadium through premium seating sections, and a longer 1,958 step lap around which climbs through the North Endzone nosebleeds. Both routes begin in the South Endzone.
You can view the routes, as well other event information, at the following link.
There is a virtual option to the event, and both entries come with a fundraising requirement:
Stadium Climbers have a $150 fundraising minimum and Climb Your Way Virtual Climbers have a $100 fundraising minimum due in order to receive your race packet.
The link to register for the event is right here.
If you would like to donate to the American Lung Association, please consider donating to my fundraising link as I will be participating in the event. My donation link is right here.
All money goes to the American Lung Association. If you plan on attending and would like to talk Bears, Chicago sports, Star Wars, or whatever, you can find me on Twitter.
