Scott Sommerdorf | The Salt Lake Tribune Chelsea Bergman begins her effort to scale the 200-foot climb -- 372 steps -- at the Zions Bank building on Main Street in downtown Salt Lake City, with her four moth-old son Keane, Sunday, Feb. 22, 2014. Participants helped raise funds for the American Lung Association at the annual Fight for Air Climb.

Four-month-old Keane Bergman seems enthralled by a firefighter preparing to scale 18 floors wearing full gear at the Zions Bank building in downtown Salt Lake City for the annual Fight for Air Climb. Later Keane and his mother, Chelsea Bergman, joined other Utahns climbing the 372 steps to help raise funds for the American Lung Association, while firefighters wore up to 80 pounds of gear and competed for the fastest time and bragging rights.
