The American Lung Association in West Virginia will have the 2013 Huntington Fight For Air Climb, the tri-state area's only stair-climbing competition, from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at Marshall University's Joan C. Edwards Stadium, 2001 3rd Ave.
Participants, teams or individuals, will climb up and down the stairs of the stadium to raise awareness for the 35 million Americans who suffer from lung disease.
Participants are asked to raise $100 to climb and pay $25 to register. All proceeds support lung disease prevention programs, research and advocacy efforts.
Climbers will be professionally timed, but there is no time limit when climbing. The Lung Association will also have a health fair and kids' fun zone at the event.
Parking is available in the West lot of the stadium, which drivers can only access through 20th Street.To register, contact Chaste Truman Barclay at 304-342-6600 or at cbarc...@lunginfo.org, or visit www.lunginfo.org/huntingtonclimb.
