Lung Health Champion Benefits

Lung Health Champions enjoy the following benefits:

  • Early registration. Beat the rush of general registration and secure your spot long before the event sells out. Lung Health Champion registration opens on October 14.
  • Your choice of start times. Want to climb early? Need time to get downtown? You will receive a Start Time Request Form as the event date approaches. Please note: if you are climbing with a team, you may not receive your first choice of climb time.
  • Personal fundraising coach. Your coach will help you create a plan to reach your $1,000 fundraising goal and provide lots of tips and support along the way.
  • Invitation to a VIP reception the Saturday of Hustle weekend.
  • Premium Hustle Chicago® stair climb technical shirt.
  • An incentive prize that may include apparel or an accessory.

Registration Fees

Between October 14 – November 7, an Early Bird registration fee of $55 + a $100 upfront donation are due at the time of registration. After November 8, registration increases to $75.

Meeting Your Fundraising Goal

Being a Lung Health Champion is a commitment. If you do not meet the $1,000 minimum through fundraising by Friday, March 17, 2023, you will be responsible for paying the balance due. However, with the help of our personal fundraising coaches and the resources available in the RHA Fundraising Toolkit, past Lung Health Champions have successfully met and even exceeded this goal. We know you can too!
