Scale the Strat is the American Lung Association in Nevada's competitive stair climb. Individuals and teams will race up the Stratosphere Observation Tower inside staircase, while raising money to fund lung health research, education and advocacy in Southern Nevada.
All climbers are encouraged to collect donations to support the fight against lung disease. With this online event management system, all climbers have a webpage for this purpose. Participants are encouraged to personalize their webpage with a photo and text about their motivations for climbing. In addition, climbers are able to send e-mails to friends and family asking for support, and to receive online credit card donations. Any offline donations (cash or checks) that are collected can be mailed in to the American Lung Association in Nevada.
