BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Participants will be walking and running up the 438 stairs of the Bennington Monument to raise money for the American Lung Association of the Northeast.

The Fight for Air Climb takes place Saturday in Bennington.

Registration starts at 9 a.m. and the climb kicks off at 10 a.m. A separate firefighter challenge starts at 11:30.

Organizers say proceeds from the Fight for Air Climb will fund lung disease research, advocacy and education including smoking cessation programs, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease/asthma management, and advocacy for stronger clean air standards.
