Fight for Air Climb

My siblings and I decided to do the American Lung Association Fight for Air Climb in honor of our mom who passed away on Dec. 1st after a long battle with COPD.  It is a climb up 1,100 stairs of 801 Grand in Des Moines, IA on Feb. 28th.

Our team is called 'Out on the Prowl."  Because as we all know my mom loved to talk about how we were going out on the prowl.  If you want to join our team, we would absolutely love that!  And I promise there will be some pretty amazing tshirts involved too.  Click Here if you want to sign up.

We would also absolutely love if you would consider giving something to reach our team goal of $500.  It could $1, 5, 10, 20, 50.  Anything would help!!!!  If you want to give, click here.

Here is their little motivational spiel "Your support helps the American Lung Association in Iowa in the Fight for Air. With lung disease on the rise, we are fighting for research that will find a cure for tomorrow. We are fighting for those who can’t quit smoking and those who shouldn’t start. We are fighting for lungs that burn from exercise rather than from ozone. We are fighting for asthma education to stop children from dying from asthma attacks. We are fighting for laws that improve air quality both inside and out. And we won’t breathe easy until we win the fight."

Thanks everybody!!!
