Aloysius Butler & Clark readies to hit the stairs for American Lung Association

Put on those sneakers and stretch those calves — Team AB&C is gearing up for the American Lung Association’s Fight for Air Climb in Wilmington, Delaware, on November 9. The venue is 1201 North Market Street — at 331 feet, the state’s tallest building. Runners will start their 21-floor ascent at 8:30 a.m. And, if one time just isn’t enough, the boldest climbers have the option of running a second leg. Luckily, a nice elevator ride awaits them on the way down.

Each AB&C’er hopes to raise $100. Additionally, the AB&C team is aiming high with a $1,000 goal in the team category. Donations will support lung disease education, research and advocacy. Lung diseases include lung cancer, COPD, asthma and emphysema — diseases to which AB&C team members have very personal connections.

Here at the agency, we’re taking our race preparation seriously. Team fitness coach Craig “Napa Valley” Brown recently brought the team to the Washington Street Bridge to run the stairs, and team captain Dante “Matt Stairs” LaPenta encourages his own version of “carbo-loading” during lunch. With matching AB&C headbands and tobacco prevention tees, the team is ready to represent!

If you’d like to help in the fight against lung cancer, please donate to the AB&C team. If you’re feeling ambitious, by all means, sign up. There are plenty of stairs and headbands to go around.
