Hundreds arrived early Sunday morning - ready to put their preparation to the test.
Tackling the 71-flight climb the only way they knew how - with gusto!
For most people, it was a one thousand and fifty step challenge.
Others expressed their passion for the cause. The Fight for Air Climb required each participant to raise $100, but many went above and beyond.
Many firefighters took on the additional challenge of climbing in 70 pounds of gear, hoping to bring the American Lung Association one step closer to a cure.
