Synteract Team Participates in San Diego "Fight for Air" Climb Sponsored by the American Lung Association

SAN DIEGO – March 30, 2016 – A team from full-service, international contract research organization Synteract, Inc. will participate in the American Lung Association’s “Fight for Air Climb” a stair-climbing challenge, to be held on Sunday, April 10, 2016 at 8:30 a.m. PDT. The CRO joins the fight against lung diseases in two ways: by participating in this event climbing a skyscraper; and through the many clinical research studies it conducts for drug developers working to find better drugs for diseases like asthma, cystic fibrosis, tuberculosis and lung cancer. The event brings together employees, friends and family members as both participants and donors.

The fundraiser is designed to help the more than 33 million people affected by lung disease in the U.S. This unique fitness challenge requires participants to climb up to the 32nd floor of One America Plaza. They can stop after one round of 657 steps or they can do a double climb of 1314 steps.

A mobile app has been developed for both iOS® and Android® platforms to help participants to fundraise using their smartphones and mobile tablets. Synteract’s donation page and team roster can be found at the following link:

Team captain and Director of Clinical Operations for Synteract Brooke Cobbs says, “Our group has already raised more than our original goal of $1,000. We encourage anyone who would like to join the team or participate as a donor to access our page and join in the fun while also helping a worthy cause.”
