Fight for Air Climb

My siblings and I decided to do the American Lung Association Fight for Air Climb in honor of our mom who passed away on Dec. 1st after a long battle with COPD. It is a climb up 1,100 stairs of 801 Grand in Des Moines, IA on Feb. 28th.

Our team is called “Out on the Prowl” My mom always had quite an interest in mentioning how she always believed us girls were “prowling” in Iowa City.
I’m sure she will be happy to know that we are continuing to use her “idea” as our teams name.
Obviously, you can all join our team if you would like, that would be absolutely awesome. (click here)
If you need motivation, I was told we would have some pretty amazing shirts made.

But if you don’t want to join our team…. Maybe you are one of those “random” people who read my blog. (When I say “random” I mean, the individuals who I secretly love and wish you would comment on every single one of my post to boost my narcissist habits…but anyways)

We would absolutely love if you would considering donating something to help us reach our current goal of $500. It could $1, 5, 10, 20, 50, etc… anything would help.
If you want to give you can click here.

Here is their little motivation…
"Your support helps the American Lung Association in Iowa in the Fight for Air. With lung disease on the rise, we are fighting for research that will find a cure for tomorrow. We are fighting for those who can’t quit smoking and those who shouldn’t start. We are fighting for lungs that burn from exercise rather than from ozone. We are fighting for asthma education to stop children from dying from asthma attacks. We are fighting for laws that improve air quality both inside and out. And we won’t breathe easy until we win the fight."
