Step Up & Breathe events

When you Step Up to the Challenge by joining one of our climb or pull events, you are making a real difference in the lives of those affected by lung disease. Participants raise funds to support the mission of The Lung Association while training to climb the stairs of a skyscraper or hauling a vehicle in the shortest time possible. 

Why your support matters

Since you’re reading this right now, it’s clear that you want to help Ontarians breathe, and we need passionate people like you. When you donate or raise funds for The Lung Association, you will become part of a breathing movement that is making real change happen. Step up to the challenge, reach new heights and be part of an unstoppable force passionate about breathing.

How The Lung Association makes a lasting difference

The Lung Association is committed to making Ontario the best place to breathe for all of us who share the air - those who have lung disease and those of us who don’t, and hopefully never will.

  • We promote healthy breathing by fighting for policies that protect our air and educate Canadians aobut what they can do to promote their own lung health.
  • We support and advocate for those living with conditions that affect the lungs and the ability to breathe, and fight to challenge the stigma and ignorance that can be associated with lung disease.
  • Through education and research, we work to turn knowledge into action and find cures to diseases that will deliver a future of better breathing for all.
  • Want to join event but have questions? We’re here to help! Just give us a call.
