“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” – Buddha
This time last year I wrote Climb for Billy about the American Lung Association’s Fight For Air Climb. My buddy Billy was battling lung cancer, so his daughter Kristin organized a team, Holubec’s Hunnies, to climb the 55-floor, 739 feet stairwell of Three Logan Square in center city Philadelphia to raise money for lung cancer research. Kristin, her sister Blair and their team will climb again on March 21, 2015.
In 2015 Holubec’s Hunnies will climb in memory of Kristin and Blaire’s dad and my buddy Billy, who lost his battle with lung cancer in May. The climb, or vertical marathon as many refer to it, was something right up Billy’s alley–a little exercise surrounded by friends and family, and plenty of cold beer afterwards at the Tir Na Nog.
Join us in downtown Philly in March 2015 for a workout and a Guinness. Log onto Fight For Air Climb and click “join a team,” then select Holubec’s Hunnies. If you aren’t able to join us and would like to donate to the cause, then click on the individual’s name that you would like to donate to. Thanks for joining the fight against lung cancer, the leading cancer killer in both men and woman.
And finally, please forward to fellow-runners, friends and family.
