”There is no other Fight for Air stair climb in the country like Scale The STRAT,” said Shannon Proctor, American Lung Association in Nevada executive director. “It is an opportunity for climbers to do good and feel great. Whether you climb for a top time or take it at your own pace, your participation will support those with lung disease fighting for every breath.”
As always, climbers will be scheduled in heats every 15 minutes. Climbers will enter the stairwell one by one, with a staggered start.
“We are thrilled to once again welcome stair climbers from all over the world to The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod for Scale The STRAT in 2023,” said Stephen Thayer, General Manager and VP of The STRAT Hotel, Casino & Skypod. “Every year, we donate staff time and the use of our iconic tower for this popular athletic fundraising event to support the American Lung Association in Nevada.”
“Anthem is proud to once again be the presenting sponsor of this iconic event, something we have done since its inception,” said Mike Murphy, president of Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Nevada. “Since that time, Scale The STRAT has raised more than $2.8 million to support the mission of the American Lung Association. We are excited to continue making a positive impact in the lives of those affected by lung disease.”
