Aprilaire Partner and Whalen & Ives salesman/estimator, Christopher Ciongoli, has joined the Aprilaire team for the American Lung Association’s Fight For Air Climb event scheduled for April 4 in New York City.
Whalen & Ives has been serving homeowners and commercial businesses in Northern NJ with Healthy Air Solutions and top-notch HVAC services since 1985.
Chris lost his mother-in-law, father-in-law, and brother-in-law to various lung diseases last year.
“An opportunity to make a difference just appeared to me on Jan 10th in an email from Aprilaire informing me about the Fight for Air Climb,” said Chris. “This was it. This is how I would help make a difference and support my wife as well as so many others that are impacted by lung disease”.
Chris has already reached 93% of his fundraising goal. To read more of Chris’s story, go to his donation page. You can also donate to his fundraising campaign there.
To prepare for his 44-floor climb Chris has started training with his dog Crosby in the morning. He’s already started to reap the benefits of those early morning training sessions.
My blood pressure has dropped, my pants are getting loose, and my dog Crosby is getting back in shape too!”
We also have several training tips for you on our page to help you prepare for your own climb.
