We will be joining 15 other American Lung Associations across the nation, challenging elite athletes and those who have a passion to raise awareness about lung health.

Approximately 400 climbers will challenge themselves by participating in this vertical race one step, one flight and one breath at a time. The Bell Atlantic Tower is 50 Stories, equaling 1088 steps.  The building is located at 1717 Arch Street.
Climb will begin at 8:30 a.m. registration will open at 7:30 a.m.  Participants will be given a specified start time and will be asked to arrive at least 45 minutes prior to that time.

Prizes will be awarded in a number of categories.
