On Saturday, June 1st, Cushman & Wakefield participated in the American Lung Association’s 2019 Fight for Air Climb, held at 555 California St., a 52-story skyscraper in downtown San Francisco. There were over 600 participants who took part in this charitable fundraising event in the City—each year similar efforts supporting this cause are also organized in high-rise buildings all across the country.
Our Cushman & Wakefield Climbers team consisted of several members from our Northern California Asset Services, including Cathryn Trieu, Max Hinz, Vishaka Avila, Del Fuette, Marsha Ramsey, Rebecca Aguilar, Carie Yox and myself, along with Kelly McClure of Rodan + Fields, and Rob Bickmore and Marwan Higgy of Johnson Controls who generously helped sponsor the team.
In total, our team successfully met the challenge of climbing all 52 flights (1,197 steps) of the building and collectively raised $2,512.00 for this worthy organization. It was truly a huge accomplishment and an exhilarating and great team building experience!
About Fight for Air Climb: The Fight For Air Climb is one of the American Lung Association’s signature fundraising events. These unique events are hosted in prominent skyscrapers across the nation and challenge participants as they walk, run or race up hundreds of stairs. The funds raised support research, education and patient programs to help the millions of Americans impacted by asthma, COPD, lung cancer, air pollution and other lung diseases.
