MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee broke a fundraising record this year at the American Lung Association's annual "Fight For Air" climb.

Organizers told TODAY's TMJ4 the climb raised $615,000 for lung disease research. 

Thousands of participants climbed the 47 floors of the US Bank building - Wisconsin's tallest building - on Saturday. Milwaukee's climb is the only one in the country to break the $600,000 mark.
