American Lung Association - Fight for Air Climb

It always feels good to give back my services to capture images and be a part of fund raising events that are created for such a great cause. I volunteered my photography services in Philadelphia last weekend for the American Lung Association. Athletes, Fire Fighters, Women and Children of all ages climbed 50 flights of stairs at Three Logan Square to raise awareness for lung disease and also to raise money for treatment and care for those that are suffering. Some were even brave enough to venture the century climb embarking upon two rounds of the grueling 50 story climb. Fire fighters impressively climbed with their entire gear on, while even one member of the group played the bag pipes during the entire climb. There were many inspiring stories of cancer and lung disease survivors, participants doing the cause for their loved ones and there was even a winner of their age group at the age of 69 years old! This was a truly remarkable experience and impliments the concept that anything is possible.
