Fairport, N.Y. —

Join the American Lung Association in New York for a 5K walk (3.1 miles) at Perinton Park in Fairport and help make a difference in the fight for healthy lungs and clean air.

In New York, an estimated 2.5 million people suffer from lung diseases including asthma, lung cancer, and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Walks are being held nationwide in an effort to bring attention to the devastating effects of lung disease. The proceeds from the Fight For Air Walk will support the American Lung Association in New York's research, education and advocacy programs.

There is a $10 registration fee for adults. Registration is free for children under 18 on the day of the walk.

Each walker who raises $100 by May 15 earns one chance in a special drawing to win a night of Red Wings baseball. Walkers earn one chance for every $100 raised. The winner of this package will enjoy the Red Wings in their own Luxury Suite at Frontier Field on Monday, June 6 at 7:05 p.m. This package includes twelve suite tickets, VIP parking and complimentary food and beverage. Generously donated by Harter Secrest & Emery LLP
