Fight For Air climb raises money for lung disease research

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- We all know it's healthier to skip the elevator and take the stairs, but climbing 38 floors...is another story.

200 people did that on Saturday morning in the Fight for Air climb, which raises money for lung disease research and raises awareness about the importance of clean air.

The participants climbed 780 steps to the top of the National City Tower.

It happens in other U.S. cities, but this is the first time the event happened in Louisville.
