Team Auris took on a new challenge and climbed its way to success (all 48 flights of it) in support of the American Lung Association’s annual fundraiser, Fight For Air Climb.
The signature event is held throughout the country, often in well-known skyscrapers, and has raised more than $45 million over the last several years. In 2017 alone, more than 30,000 people from over 50 Climb events nationwide raised more than $8.3 million.
For Auris, a team of 20 volunteer climbers ranging from engineers to VP's, it was the company’s first time participating in the physically and mentally grueling challenge. Needless to say, it certainly won’t be the last time either!
Prior to taking position at 101 California Street's skyscraper start line in San Francisco, Auris raised over $3,000 in support of the American Lung Association's mission – improve lung health and prevent lung disease, through research, education and advocacy. From internal Penny Wars to online donations to customized team shirts, the staff’s love for competition helped the team surpass its inaugural fundraising goal.
Every member of Team Auris made it to the skyscraper's top, some with less breath than others, to enjoy the majestic San Francisco skyline while relishing in the accomplishment over brunch and brews with fellow competitors.
Team Auris looks forward to taking on the challenge in 2018, yet again!
