Charity Information

When you join the American Lung Association in the fight for healthy lungs and healthy air, you help save lives today and keep America healthy tomorrow.

Our Mission: To save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.

Mission Goals

  • The American Lung Association will eliminate tobacco use and tobacco-related lung disease.

  • The American Lung Association will improve the air we breathe so it will not cause or worsen lung disease.

  • The American Lung Association will reduce the burden of lung disease on patients and their families.

The American Lung Association has a dedicated board of directors and nationwide assembly, volunteers who donate their time to help the organization plan and achieve its goals, which are clearly identified in the Lung Association's five-year strategic plan. 

From a governance and oversight perspective, the Lung Association's board and assembly convene regularly in order to monitor progress toward achieving these goals.  A performance based management system enables the Lung Association to track and report on progress toward not only meeting its longer-term goals but also shorter-term objectives related to fulfilling the mission of the organization. 


More Information

By joining the Fight for Air Climb, you are helping to make a positive impact in the lives of those affected by lung disease. Participants raise funds to support the mission of the American Lung Association while training to climb the stairs of a skyscraper, stadium, or other landmark building.

Make the most of your experience and climb as a part of a team. Teams consist of friends, family and co-workers who want to help raise awareness and funds to support research, patient programs and advocacy efforts. You can climb as an individual, but climbing as a part of a team increases the impact you can make!

Once you register, you'll have access to your Fight for Air Climb Participant Center. You’ll have the ability to customize your personal web page and share your reason for climbing, send emails to ask others to join you or donate, and even download Facebook and smart phone apps. We are here to help you, from the first step in your climb all the way to the top!
