Event Recap: 2014 Fight for Air Climb - Hartford
Employees and family members of Kelser Corporation climbed 731 stairs to the top of Cityplace I, Connecticut’s tallest building, to raise funds and spread awareness for the American Lung Association in their annual Fight for Air Climb. The information technology solutions provider, through their philanthropic Foundation, is an annual participant in the climb and a longtime supporter of the ALA. 15 members of the “Kelser Krew” made the climb, raising over $3,600 for the cause.
"The Fight For Air Climb is an event to look forward to every year," said Lisa Carroll, Marketing Manager for Kelser and head of the Foundation. "Scaling the hundreds of stairs is a great teambuilding exercise in which we all raise substantial monies for an organization we believe in."
There are several climb events in different locations throughout the year. Look for the Kelser Krew to climb again soon.
