LAUGHLIN, NV – January 15, 2014 – Aquarius Casino Resort team members will take steps to help end lung disease in Nevada by participating in the sixth annual “Scale the Strat” on Sunday, March 2 at Aquarius’ sister property Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Scale the Strat” is an extreme stair climb event that helps raise money for the American Lung Association in Nevada’s mission of preventing lung diseases and promoting lung health.
“Scale the Strat is our major fundraiser,” said American Lung Association in Nevada Executive Director Allison Newlon Moser. “It has been exciting to see this extreme stair climb event grow year after year.”
Hundreds of athletes of all abilities will climb 108 floors and 1,455 steps inside the iconic Stratosphere Tower, the highest building west of the Mississippi River. Aquarius team members are challenging every member of the tri-state area to participate and help those in Nevada that are struggling to breathe every day.
“Be warned. This is not an easy event,” said Aquarius Casino Resort General Manager Sean Hammond. “Yet every year we have more and more Aquarius team members and community members from the tri-state area willing to fundraise and Scale the Strat to support this very important cause.”
This is the fourth consecutive year Aquarius team members will join other employees from American Casino & Entertainment Properties (ACEP) sister properties in Las Vegas, the Stratosphere Casino Hotel & Tower and Arizona Charlie’s, on their joint stair climbing team the “Stratospheric Scalers”.
Last year, nine Aquarius team members laced up their running shoes to participate in the event and collectively raised an impressive $3,700 to help fund the American Lung Association’s mission.
Early Bird Registration is $60 for climbers who register before February 16, 2014. Regular and Walk-In Registration is $75 for climbers who register February 17, 2014 to March 2, 2014, the day of the climb. In addition to the registration fee, all climbers are asked to make a minimum fundraising pledge of $150. Online support and personal fundraising coaching is available on www.ScaletheStrat.com to help climbers achieve their fundraising goal. Special room rates at Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower are available for the event.
