Join BOMA's Fight for Air Climb Team to Support Healthy Lungs & Living!

by: BOMA San Diego's Community Service Committee

Section: Committee Corner




On Sunday, March 30th, BOMA will participate in the American Lung Association’s Fight for Air Climb for the fourth year in a row. This unique and challenging fundraiser, sometimes called a vertical road race, invites participants to climb 32 flights of stairs as quickly (or slowly) as they can. In previous years, the BOMA team has distinguished itself in multiple ways:

·         Top fundraising team
·         Top three individual fundraisers: Nancy Walther-Meade, Carlos Walther-Meade and Greg Thornburg
·         Third place female finisher: Diana Cuevas
 
This fun and meaningful challenge is one of the Community Service Committee’s four annual events and you don’t want to miss it! You don’t have to be a great athlete to enjoy the team spirit, the excitement and the pride that come from experiencing this grueling but worthwhile event. In 2011, two women participated who had had lung transplants thanks to the ALA. If they can do it...BOMA can do it!
 
No one should have to struggle to breathe

This year the event will take place at One America Plaza in downtown San Diego. The event is set up with wave times, in 15 minute increments. Climbers are released into the stairwells in 5-10 second intervals. Each climber receives a personal time and rankings are posted as the race progress. Participants are required to raise a minimum of $100 by race day. Incentive prizes are offered for fundraising levels of $250 or more.
 
Addtionally, Dave Pogue of CBRE has agreed to match funds raised of up to $3,000! If you are not able to participate please donate to help our team reach our fundraising goal. CLICK HERE TO JOIN OR DONATE.
