MSA Sponsors "Fight for Air" Climb to Benefit American Lung Association
Portable Gas Detection
Thermal Imaging Cameras
MSA sponsored the "Fight for Air Climb" in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on March 21st, 2015 at the U.S. Bank Center. This year's event hosted 3,150 climbers, including 500 firefighters in full gear and equipment, who participated to raise funds to support the American Lung Association. Participants climbed 47 flights of stairs totaling 1,034 steps in all in this unique event often referred to as a "vertical road race."
This is the third year MSA has proudly supported the Climb by donating logoed water bottles, sponsoring a team of climbers, and promoting SCBA's and Thermal Imaging Cameras at the event itself.
We are pleased to announce that this year's efforts generated over $750,000 in the fight against lung diseases! A special shout-out to Denver Smiddy, MSA Chicago TSM and a first-time climber, who finished 5th place overall! Congratulations to all!
