Come join the WorldMed group as we “Fight for Air Climb” on March 31st! More details below:

Event: American Lung Association: Fight for Air Climb

Date: March 31, 2012

Location: Aon Center (Downtown Los Angeles)

Fight for Air Climb is a unique fundraising event by the American Lung Association. It takes place at the Aon Center, the second tallest skyscraper in Downtown LA. It is about 63 flights of stairs to climb, which we will do as a team, and shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes or so to walk at a continuous pace. There will be sponsors handing out free merchandise such as energy drinks and energy bars.

As a team we would set a fundraising goal that we would try our hardest to meet. Each participant would use his or her own network to raise a minimum of $100. A website will we be generated for our team where donors can submit their contributions in your name. The money is sent directly to the ALA and would be used towards education, research, and advocacy programs to fight for healthy lungs and clean air.

Several weeks before the climb we would meet at a designated time once a week for training. It is not going to be like boot camp training. You can workout at your own pace and ability. This will give our brains a break from studying and exercise our actual bodies. It will be a fun activity for GM student to work outside of school and a wonderful way to support the battle against lung disease and polluted air.

Once the group is registered we will send out the website link where you can register as part of the group. The normal fee is $25 for registration, but if we sign up before December 15 it will be only $15. WorldMed will try to get a grant that will hopefully reimburse participants for the registration fee.

Please let us know if you are interested ASAP so we can get the ball rolling on this project. If you want more information check out the website at or feel free to email Ben Barmaan if you wish to know more about it.
