Support my Fight for Air Climb 2013

fight-2013 (opens new window)Last year I had the opportunity to do something completely different. Climb 70 flights of stairs (opens new window) to support the fight against lung cancer. It was probably one of the funnest things I've done. I finished in 13 minutes, 40 seconds (opens new window).

# Doing it again this year

Because it was such a great experience I've decided to do it again this year!

On March 3rd I am going to take on Michigan's tallest building (the Renaissance Center (opens new window)) all the way to the 70th floor by climbing 1,035 stairs. I am climbing in the American Lung Association's Fight for Air Climb to help raise money for lung disease research, education and advocacy.

I am doing so because I am able. I can breathe freely and there are many people who are not as lucky. I am joining a team of likeminded Web designers and developers from Detroit on my journey, our team name is the "Quadzillas (opens new window)".

# I would love your support

For the 2013 Fight for Air stair climb my team would like to raise a minimum of $1,035 dollars, or $1 for every step in the GM Renaissance Center.

(opens new window)We need your help! You can donate to one person (opens new window), or spread it out among the members. You can donate $1 (one step) or $15 (one floor) or any amount you want! Either way you choose to donate is greatly appreciated! Or if you would like to join me I would be honored to climb with you!

Your donation to the American Lung Association will sustain their commitment to the prevention of all respiratory diseases including lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (emphysema and chronic bronchitis) and asthma.

Thank you for your support of my effort to raising money for this very important cause
