Several Indianapolis lawyers will participate in the “Fight for Air Climb” Saturday to benefit the American Lung Association.
Climbers in the annual fundraiser ascend 35 flights of stairs in the Regions Bank Tower in downtown Indianapolis once, twice or three times. Last year was the first time law firms opted to compete against other, with Frost Brown Todd taking first place in the competition. Barnes & Thornburg came in second.
As of Friday, among the top five corporate sponsors for the event, three were law firms – Frost Brown Todd, Barnes & Thornburg and Bingham Greenebaum Doll. The total combined funds contributed by those three firms was nearly $13,000.
Dan Long, of Frost Brown Todd, said that while the event is March 10, donations will be accepted through the end of the month. Donations may be made online or to participating individuals or law firms. Long said cash donations are welcome, too.
“And we promise to actually give it to the American Lung Association and not spend it on lunch,” he said.
