Leigh Braswell, David Danhof, Hunter Henritze and Anna–Marie LaFavor of Lincoln Property Company Southeast participated Saturday in Atlanta’s 2011 Fight for Air Climb, an event to raise money for the American Lung Association in Georgia. This is the event’s fifth year in Atlanta and Saturday’s race raised over $53,000 for the organization. Participants had to raise at least $100 before they could enter the race.
The American Lung Association in Georgia continues to play a critical role in developing and funding weapons to prevent, detect and treat lung disease. LPC was a platinum sponsor for the annual climb. When event organizers were looking for a building with a presence in the Atlanta Skyline, LPC stepped up and offered The Equitable Building, leased and managed by LPC. The LPC building management was extremely supportive and excited to make the event possible. The management team was on-site for the event and helped make sure the fundraiser was a success.
If you have never been to this event, it is something to see! Approximately 250 participants formed a queue in front of the building’s stairwell. Every 15 seconds a climber began his race up The Equitable Building’s 32 flights of stairs. Congratulations to Hunter who won the fastest male climb with an impressive time of 4 minutes and 30 seconds. Lincoln was also recognized for putting together the top team! A special thanks to all the LPC employees who contributed money to the cause, but were not able to attend the event. Your support is greatly appreciated.
“A lot of us at LPC have a personal connection to the cause which made the event even more meaningful,” said Braswell, vice president with LPC. “However, this event is not an easy workout! I have run a number of races and I consider myself to be in pretty good shape. All of us found the stair climb to be very intense and much harder than it looks.”
