Summary
On the second Wednesday in January, improve our health by leaving the elevator behind and walking up the stairs.

On the second Wednesday in January, the American Lung Association challenges people to adopt healthy habits in the new year by taking the stairs, and then supporting lung health by registering for the Fight For Air Climb. 

The Fight For Air Climb typically takes place in stairwells of various buildings across the country. 

National Take the Stairs Day began in 2016

Good reasons to take the stairs for National Take the Stairs Day:

To Improve Your Health:
Stair climbing is a great way to burn calories but is also a simple way to improve your overall health. According to The Journal of the American Medical Association’s Physical Activities Guidelines for Americans, experts recommend small changes to daily activities such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator. The report states that changes like this can increase overall health and reduce the risk of many chronic diseases. 

To Feel What It’s Like For People with Lung Disease:
After a vigorous climb up stairs, you may be gasping for air and your lungs might be burning. While this is temporary for you, this is what it can feel like every day for people living with lung disease. Take the stairs and then educate yourself about lung diseases like asthma, lung cancer and chronic pulmonary obstructive disease that millions of people live with every day.
