Those who’ve wondered what it takes to climb the stairs to the top of the Stratosphere can find out while benefiting the American Lung Association.

The annual Scale the Strat event drew a record 400 people this year, climbing 1,455 stairs to raise $130,000 to fight lung diseases in Nevada.

The next climb is set for March 2 and is limited to the first 600 registrants. Registration is available online at ScaletheStrat.com. The fee is $50 with a $150 pledge to the American Lung Association.

Participants may register as individuals or as a team. There is a discount for those signing up before Dec. 31.
