Milwaukee: Fight For Air Climb
Sikich Invests in Milwaukee’s Public Health, First-time sponsor, four-time climb team of the Lung Association
MILWAUKEE (March 14, 2022) – The Sikich Stair Force team has proudly participated in four of the American Lung Association’s Fight For Air Climb events. Today, the Lung Association in Wisconsin announced that Sikich LLP has signed on as a sponsor of the 2022 Fight For Air Climb at American Family Field, home of the Milwaukee Brewers, on April 9.
The Milwaukee Fight For Air Climb includes hundreds of climbers of all fitness levels, families and corporate teams from across Wisconsin. Participants in this year’s event can challenge themselves by climbing on the Loge Level and Terrace Level up to three times, totaling 5,303 steps. The Lung Association is also offering a “Climb Your Way” option for those who can’t attend the event.
“Sikich is honored to sponsor the 2022 Fight For Air Climb and bring awareness to the Lung Association’s mission,” said Mark Sobczak, Wisconsin market leader at Sikich. “This event is an opportunity for the Sikich team to come together and raise money for education and research to help end lung disease. We look forward to climbing together as colleagues.”
Since 2018, the Sikich Stair Force team has raised nearly $16,000 for the Lung Association. They are bringing back their annual (virtual) pie-in-the-face fundraiser to raise money for the Climb. For this year’s event, the Stair Force team is comprised of seven in-person or “Climb Your Way” participants. Their fundraising goal is to raise $2,000.
