On April 6, the Lung Health Institute team is lacing up our sneakers and gearing up to fight for a cure for patients who suffer from lung disease. For the past several years, our organization has worked tirelessly to provide relief to patients who are limited by chronic lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and interstitial lung disease (ILD). We provide innovative treatments proven to help reduce inflammation in the lungs, and we empower our patients with the knowledge and tools they need to live a healthier, more active lifestyle before and after treatment.
But we realize that there is still so much more to do in the way of curing lung disease. That is why we are joining the Fight for Air Climb on April 6, and that is why we encourage you to get involved in any way you can, so together, we can all push forward.
What is the Fight for Air Climb?
Every year, the American Lung Association (ALA) hosts Fight for Air Climb events across the country. During these events, participants will climb the stairs of a skyscraper all the way to the top. While some people do this for the physical challenge, most do it because they have friends and family members who are suffering from lung disease making them unable to climb stairs and perform other daily activities that we often take for granted.
Through sponsors and other donations, the ALA has raised millions of dollars over the past several years to help aid research and patient education about lung disease.
We’re Stepping Up for Those Who Can’t
Helping patients find relief from chronic lung disease is our priority at Lung Health Institute. That is why we’ve formed a team to participate in the Fight for Air Climb this year. We’ll be heading to the Bank of America building in Tampa, Florida, to climb up 914 stairs (42 floors) to raise money and awareness for patients who suffer from chronic lung disease.
If you’d like to get involved or donate to this cause, you can find more information on the event page for Fight for Air Climb Tampa.
