Fight For Air ClimbComing Soon! The 2013 Team Challenge

It’s that time of year!  The 2013 Fight For Air Climb Team Competition is just around the corner.  This year’s Team Competition starts November 1st and ends on November 30th.  The team to get the most new members will win the grand prize.  Stay tuned for contest rules and to see what your team can win.


Training Tip

Place your entire foot on each step. Allowing your heels to hang over the edges may injure your Achilles tendon.

Look forward, keeping your head up. Don’t let it droop, which can cause neck strain, though it is fine to glance down when necessary to get your bearings.


Fundraising Tip: Plan a Paper Cloud Sale

Paper Cloud ImagePlan ahead to make the biggest impact! November is Lung Cancer and COPD Awareness Month. Plan a fundraiser using Paper Clouds.  You can sell them for $1 each and display them at your office, business, school or gym.  It is a great way to bring awareness to lung disease and boost your fundraising.  Or plan an individualized team kick-off event to raise awareness and boost your team registration.  Contact your Climb Manager to get started.
