The registration price for the 33rd Annual Fight For Air Ride increases from $50 to $75 on Saturday, March 24.

Taking place June 8 - 10, 2018, the American Lung Association in Greater Chicago’s Fight For Air Ride is one of the most scenic races in the country. Hundreds of cyclists of all levels ride approximately 50 miles per day for two or three days through scenic rural communities of Northern Illinois and the rolling hills of southern Wisconsin. Along the route, participants enjoy the views of six lakes highlighted by Lake Geneva in Wisconsin. Each night, participants are housed at the Abbey Resort and Spa on Lake Geneva.

“Between now and June, cyclists will train for this fun, challenging ride, while also fundraising to help the 1.3 million people in Illinois who suffer from lung disease,” said Kristen Young, executive director for the Lung Association. “The event offers a 150-mile, three-day ride, as well as a 100-mile route over two days.”

Almost ninety cents of every dollar raised raised will fund research, educational programs and advocacy efforts in the fight against lung disease.

Registration is open now at Registration is $50 currently, and increases to $75 at midnight on March 24.
