Most British Columbians take breathing for granted, but not Surrey resident Richard Mishra nor the 500 other British Columbians taking part in the BC Lung Association’s 11th-annual Stairclimb for Clean Air fundraiser.

On Feb. 26, Mishra and his teammates will join hundreds to face one of B.C.’s tallest staircases, the 48 flights of the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre Hotel, in support of lung health.

People at all fitness levels come out for the annual event, says BC Lung Association event organizer Marissa McFadyen.

“There’s zero intimidation factor. We’re simply all in it to give back, honour those affected by lung disease and have a little fun at the same time.”

To participate, each stair climber must commit to fundraising a minimum of $125, and in return receives an event T-shirt, a continental breakfast and the chance to win prizes including a trip for two to Paris.

All proceeds fund vital lung health and air quality research, programs and initiatives.

To register, visit www.stairclimb.ca or contact the BC Lung Association at 604-731-LUNG (5864).
