    The last ALA walk near me was a 200 foot stair climb, so I had to miss it… haha.

    • VK,
      YES you’re so right. The ALA does the “fight for air climb” where they climb a certain amount of flights of stairs. Something that oddly enough a lot of people with lung disease find most challenging. I think it is supposed to simulate how those with lung disease feel with just minimal activity when the “average” person reaches the top step. It does a pretty good job at raising awareness but I wish there was something like a walk too that those with lung disease could ACTUALLY participate in to their capacity. I was a volunteer and a speaker for the ALA Fight For Air Climb and it was really good to be a part of something like that and talk about my conditions so openly.
