We just parked and looking forward to the Climb.
The Fight For Air Climb is run by the American Lung Association. You raise money for research , education and assistance for those who struggle for each breath they take. Than you climb 51 floors to the top of 191 PeachTree Towers, a total of 1,272 steps.
The first thing I loved about the event is that more was raised this year than last year, in order to support awareness and research for new treatments. The goal was $225,000 but $290,310 was raised. Every dollar that is raised is well used to benefit those who have lung conditions, so that they in the future will have more options for their care.
The second thing I loved about the climb this year is I was able to help with a water station at the top. It was so much fun to see the climb from a different perspective. I was really upset that I couldn’t climb, but I was blessed to be able to help those who could, and to see how much they put into their climb. It was quite amazing to see the Firefighters when they reached the top. They are really amazing in how they give it their all, even for a climb to the top of 191 PeachTree Towers.
The fourth thing I loved is that Oluf signed up and climbed in my place, in honor of his PaPa and in memory of his Nanny. So my place was filled, and he climbed it so well. I was very proud of him as well as the rest of my family.
The fifth thing I loved is that we were finally able to interest two other people to climb in it this year. And it was pretty cool they had a live feed so you could watch as people finished their climb.
Ken finished his climb in 11:03, he placed 3rd in AG
Faith finished in 13:04, she was 1st in AG
Mary finished in 19:05, she was in 6th inAG
Oluf finished in 19:08, he was 3rd in AG
We than that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the week, and not to please ourselves.
Let everyone of us please (his) neighbor for (his) good to edification.
