Harris San Diego Forms Team to Support Effort

California Corporate Social Responsibility

  • Rani Benskin and other Harris San Diego employee-owners participated in the 2013 Fight for Air Climb

    San Diego, CA -

    Harris employee-owner and San Diego Office Manager Rani Benskin, along with many other San Diegans, formed a team to join together in a climb. The climb raises awareness for the 35 million Americans who suffer from lung diseases; such as lung cancer, asthma, COPD, emphysema and bronchitis.

    The event took place on Saturday, March 30, 2014 at the tallest building in San Diego, One America Plaza. Climbers ascended the 657 stairs to the 32nd floor! Thousands of individuals across the nation who also believe in the cause will climb in their communities as well.

    This was Rani Benksin’s second Fight for Air climb, having participated in the event last year. This year, three other employee-owners joined her in the climb and fundraising. The team was able to raise $1,330!
