The Fight for Air Climb is a unique athletic and fundraising challenge held at the Promenade in midtown Atlanta where participants race 40 floors to the top. The Annual Climb will attract more than 250 firefighters climbing in full gear and over 600 non-firefighters who are motivated and passionate about the cause, as well as enjoy new and challenging athletic events. Climbers with or affected by lung disease unite with friends, family and co-workers for a memorable experience and an opportunity to fundraise for a meaningful cause. Volunteers are needed to help with event logistics.

Volunteers will be assigned tasks such as assisting with registration, monitoring the stair wells, setting up, cleaning up, supporting the vendor village, managing water stations, etc. A mandatory orientation is required for all stairwell monitor positions. Stairwell monitors keep an eye on participants. Participants are not permitted on floors other than the pre-selected aid station floors. Volunteers will direct anyone seeking hydration or a restroom to the next available floor. Stairwell monitors will have radios to ALA staff and medical team to alert anyone to medical issues.

 Volunteers under the age of 18 will need to accompanied by an adult or group chaperone.
