Hustle Fundraising Support

In light of growing concerns around COVID-19 and the increased need for RHA’s programming, we are extending the fundraising deadline for Hustle Chicago® stair climb to March 30, 2020. Read more here.


As a Hustle Chicago® stair climb participant, you have an important impact on air quality and people living with asthma, COPD, lung cancer, and other lung diseases. All fundraising proceeds benefit Respiratory Health Association’s mission to prevent lung disease, promote clean air, and help people live better through education, research, and policy change.

Because Hustle is an RHA fundraising event, below you’ll find a variety of resources to make your fundraising efforts as easy and FUN as possible.
