WHY: To show support for all those for whom breathing is an uphill climb. The American Lung Association is the nation's leader in the fight for clean air, funding research to cure deadly lung diseases, educating school and medical personnel to recognize and treat asthma attacks in children, campaigning for smoke-free workplaces and standing up to the tobacco industry to protect our children from the dangers of smoking.

OTHER: You do not have to climb stairs to participate! The vertically challenged are invited to stay on the ground level for our street fair. Olympic gold medalist Mary Jo Fernandez (tennis star and asthma spokesperson) is scheduled to participate.
