CSX Employees Take Home Top Honors At Fight For Air Climb


For the sixth consecutive year, CSX fielded a team of employees to race up the 838 steps of the Bank of America building in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. The event, known as the Fight for Air Climb, remembers those who have died from lung cancer, encourages conversation about air quality and pollution, and raises funds for the American Lung Association.

The American Lung Association hosts Fight for Air Climbs across the country. Climbs take place in prominent skyscrapers, stadiums, or arenas and involve walking, running or racing up hundreds of steps. Sometimes called a "vertical road race", teams and individual participants can use the event as a fitness target, as a race, or as a great way to be active and meet new friends.

This year, 67 CSX employees completed the Jacksonville climb. At its completion, CSX took home four trophies in the event, with wins for Largest Team, Fastest Team, and the Highest Fundraising Team. The Fastest Team trophy went to CSX's top three climbers: Ken Miller, who completed the climb in 5:56 minutes; Brian Beville, who completed the climb in 6:33 minutes; and Elaine Beville, who completed the climb in 6:36 minutes. Elaine also won for Fastest Female Climber.

Other bracket awards went to Ken Miller, 3rd place (Men Overall); Brendon Griggs, 3rd place (Men 10-18); Brian Beville (Men 19-29); Matt Ohlmann (Men 19-29); Patrick Carney (Men 40-49); Raghu Chatrathi (Men 40-49); Mark Grant (Men 40-49); Peggy Emeis (Women 50-59); and Cindy Nobles (Women 50-59).

In addition to finishing well, the CSX team raised just over $12,000 for the American Lung Association. Team Captain Roy Carter, an IT Architect II, was particularly proud of their achievement. "Our employees prove time and time again how well we can work together, especially for a good cause. I just want to thank everyone for participating in this wonderful event."
