Loyal readers will remember that I participated in an event last year where I climbed 53 flights of stairs (1272 total) in two buildings to raise money for the American Lung Association. The last few flights of stairs were a bit painful, but I made it to the top as shown in the picture at right. I was pretty impressed that I completed the climb in 15 minutes and 15 seconds. This year I want to do better and you will help determine my goal. For every dollar I raise in donations (for the American Lung Association), I will do my very best to shave 1 second off of my time. If my total donations are $100, that means I have to complete the climb in 13 minutes and 35 seconds to meet my personal goal. More donations will mean that I really have to push myself even harder.
I’m asking each of you if you could donate just a little bit. Remember that this is for the American Lung Association so your donation is most likely tax deductible. You can visit my page for the Climb Phoenix event to get more information and to donate. Thanks in advance for your support!
