A White Rock woman who has survived lung surgery is again putting some heart into a BC Lung Association fundraiser.

Allison Voth – who underwent lung surgery in November 2010 – is among a team of friends who are participating in the 13th annual Climb the Wall: The Stairclimb for Clean Air. The March 16 event challenges people of all ages to hike 48 storeys up to the top of the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre Hotel in support of lung health.

The climb takes 10 to 15 minutes on average and all proceeds will support lung-health and clean-air initiatives.

Registration is $25. For more information, visit www.stairclimb.ca or call the BC Lung Association at 604-731-5864.
