strat2015Extreme Stair Climb at Stratosphere Tower Benefits American Lung Association in Nevada. Twenty-seven Aquarius Casino Resort Team Members are planning to Scale the Strat on Sunday, March 1, 2015 to raise money for the American Lung Association in Nevada’s mission of preventing lung disease and promoting lung health. With nearly thirty team members, Aquarius will bring nearly triple the number of climbers as last year to tackle the stairwells inside Stratosphere Tower, the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. Aquarius climbers will join with team members from their sister properties Arizona Charlie’s Decatur, Arizona Charlie’s Boulder and Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas to create team “Stratospheric Scalers.” “Stratospheric Scalers” is historically one of the largest teams and biggest fundraisers for this annual event.  This year will be the fifth consecutive year Aquarius will participate in the nonprofit’s extreme stair climb.  Last year, ten Aquarius climbers raised an impressive $4,060 to support the cause. “When we get to the top of the iconic Stratosphere Tower we are most definitely out of breath,” said Aquarius Casino Resort General Manager Sean Hammond. “But we know we’re climbing 1,455 stairs to help those who struggle to breathe everyday.” Team Aquarius has been practicing in Aquarius stairwells and invite members of the community to join them to support this worthy cause and test their fitness level. Registration is $60, and each climber must fundraise an additional $150 to participate.  To learn more, find special hotel rates and register for the extreme stair climb, visit Please contact Cyndi McAdams at 702-298-5153 or email her at if you are interested in joining Team Aquarius for the 7th Annual Scale the Strat extreme stair climb.
