Climb One Gateway Center to Raise Funds for American Lung Association

On Saturday, March 28, the American Lung Association of the Mid-Atlantic will present the Fight for Air Climb at One Gateway Center in Downtown Newark. The event will raise funds for the association's efforts to prevent lung disease and to improve lung health. Participants will climb 26 flights of stairs. The registration fee is $25 and the minimum fundraising amount is $100. Registration will begin at 7:00am, and the first wave will start at 8:30am. The climb will be followed by an after-party at the neighboring Hilton Newark Penn Station Hotel. According to the American Lung Association, waves will be assigned one week before the date of the event. Those who register will receive a free week of membership to a New York Sports Clubs location, and the first 100 participants to register will receive free garage parking for the climb. The event is sponsored by Advance Realty.
