Team Auris will participate in the American Lung Association’s Fight for Air Climb in San Francisco on June 1, 2019. This is Team Auris’ second year participating in the event, and together they raised over $10,000 for the American Lung Association. Auris’ work naturally aligns with the American Lung Association’s mission, as the first application of our Monarch Platform helps physicians diagnose hard-to-reach nodules in the lungs, enabling earlier diagnosis and treatment of lung disease. As such, Auris is proud to participate in an event that is also helping to further lung cancer research.
The American Lung Association hosts several Fight for Air Climb events across the United States each year, with the goal of raising money to help fund lung health research, patient education, and public policy efforts to help save more lives. The event is a stair climb held in prominent skyscrapers across the country. To raise money, teams or individuals get donations from friends, family, businesses, etc., then come together to make the climb on the day of the event.
This year’s San Francisco Fight for Air Climb will be held at the 555 California building. Team Auris will climb 52 flights of stairs, from the bottom floor all the way to the top of the building. In total, the event hopes to raise $300,000 for the American Lung Association.Learn more about the Fight for Air Climb
