What is Fight for Air Climb?

Fight for Air Climbs are unique fundraising events for the American Lung Association ( . They usually happen in prominent skyscrapers, stadiums or arenas and involve climbing multiple steps.

MSB-Shakopee Criminal Justice student, Tony Mootz, will be climbing the Accenture Tower in Minneapolis, February 25, in honor of his dad, who battled lung cancer. Here is Tony’s mission, in his own words:

Remembering Dad

In September 2011, my dad was diagnosed with lung cancer. This news
was not taken lightly and changed my outlook on life. I took this time
to make sure I spent as much time with my dad as I could.  He was the
most amazing, influential, and kind man I ever knew.  My dad’s mission
was to greet you with a smile and make sure you had one when he left. 
My dad did everything and anything to make sure he could survive his
battle with lung cancer, unfortunately, we are not so lucky.

I am walking in the  Fight For Air Climb for him and to fight to find
a cure, so other kids don’t go through what my sister and I, and my
mom are going through.
Please either join me and register for the climb or make a donation to the American Lung Association to support our FIGHT FOR AIR.

Thank you for joining me in this important fight.
