Lung cancer is the number-1 cancer killer in America, and it is rampant among World Trade Center survivors and recovery workers. 433 people a day die from lung cancer – 159,480 deaths a year.

The Fight for Air Climb is a “vertical marathon”. Participants can choose to race, run, or walk up 32 floors. Racers & runners will climb first, followed by walkers.
