Climbing stairs for air


MARCUS YAM / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Kim Rice begins her 40-flight staircase climb with wild enthusiasm as she bolts from the starting line of the Fight for Air Climb up Rainier Tower in Seattle Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014. More than 300 people participated in the annual event in support of the American Lung Association. Participants are allowed to complete 40, 80 or 160 floors to raise more than $50,000 for education, research and advocacy work.
