Climb to Breathe

From the moment those affected by asthma, lung cancer, and emphysema are diagnosed — and probably before then — taking a breath of fresh air is no easy task. Until the movie Repo Men can become real life, you know, with none of that creepy organ-repossession stuff, those with lung disease need the help of others to raise funds for and awareness of the cause. Enter the 2012 Fight for Air Climb, where individuals, groups, or corporations can participate Saturday and walk up 30 floors of the 110 Tower, located at SE Sixth St. in Fort Lauderdale (park in that garage). Registration costs $34 through Friday. Check-in on Saturday begins at 7:30 a.m., and start times will be emailed out to climbers and posted on the website a week before the event.
