THE AIR UP THERE

Late comedian Mitch Hedburg used to joke that an escalator can never break; it can only become stairs.

“You would never see an ‘Escalator temporarily out of order sign,’ just ‘Escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience,’ ” he said.

This Saturday, taking the stairs at the Hilton Hotel in Springfield will be less of a convenience and more of a personal challenge. That’s because the Hilton is hosting the  American Lung Association’s Fight for Air stair climb, sending locals of all fitness levels up the 60 flights of stairs to the top.

If you hurry, you can still register and raise the minimum $100 fundraising goal to participate. For more information, visit www.lungil.org or call 217-787-5864.
