They were preparing to traverse the 100 floors of the Old Hancock Building ( Chicago Hustle) in Chicago to help raise awareness to the fight against Lung Disease. Their moto " We're Breathing Heavy So You Don't Have To" . We are and should be proud of how they are representing the Antioch Community.

Since 1998, Hustle ChicagoSM participants have raised more than $17 million in the local
fight against lung disease. Thank you!
Together, we are making a difference by providing scientists with local research funding
(lung cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, and COPD), by delivering programs to help kids living
with asthma and adults living with COPD (emphysema and chronic bronchitis), and by
passing laws to reduce youth smoking and promote clean and renewable energy in
Illinois, benefiting everyone who breathes. None of this would be possible without your

makes this possible.
If you are climbing for a loved one touched by lung disease, our thoughts are with you.
Today you are making a difference in the fight against lung disease. For more
