MONROE - Christie Deyo found motivation after she lost her father to lung cancer in October - enough to try to create change one step at a time. On Saturday, the Monroe woman will push herself up more than 1,000 steps of the U.S. Bank Center building in downtown Milwaukee to raise money for the Fight for Air Climb event hosted by the American Lung Association. Deyo and six relatives have formed a team called the "Stepping Rebels."
