CONQUERING LUNG DISEASE TOGETHER
Nationwide, asthma, COPD and other lung diseases affect more than 33 million Americans, with lung cancer being the highest cause of death. Lung disease death rates continue to increase while other leading causes of death have declined. The American Lung Association combats these statistics by conducting lung health education, life-saving research, programs and services, advocacy, for all types of lung diseases.
TruWest Credit Union has partnered with the Lung Association in projects to help further community efforts in the fight against lung disease.

Fight for Air Climbs
The Fight For Air Climb is one of the American Lung Association’s signature fundraising events. These unique events are hosted in prominent buildings across the nation and challenge participants as they walk, run or race up hundreds of stairs. Due to COVID-19, the 2020 climb has gone virtual!
WHEN: May 1 to June 30, 2020
WHERE: You choose! Due to the current environment of social distancing requirements, this “climb” is virtual. Your individual climb could be a walk around a park, on a trail, or a hike on one of the many beautiful mountains or parks throughout Arizona or Texas. Your climb does not have to be a certain distance.
