Fight For Air Climb

Congratulations to all who participated!

On March 22, 2014 the team of Andrea Bryant, Steve Milella, Nicole Sakac and Amy Schmit all from the County Jail, with Lisa Milella from the Juvenile Clerk's Office and Brandon Wickus all participated in the Fight for Air Climb at the U.S. Bank Center in downtown Milwaukee. The team raised a total of $1047.85, helping to add to the more than $615,000 that was raised for the American Lung Assocation of Wisconsin.

The event attracted nearly 2,700 participants and 397 teams, including 50 firefighter/police teams in a race to climb the 47 flights of stairs (1,034 steps) to the top of the U.S. Bank Center.

Thank you to all for making this race a priority and helping the American Lung Association.
