Each year, too many lives are lost to lung disease and this is your chance to walk, raise money and make an impact in their honor. By joining the Fight For Walk you are making the commitment to fight lung disease so everyone can breathe easier- including you!
Families, individuals and teams join together in a walk to raise awareness for the 35 million Americans who suffer from asthma. Participants work together to fundraise.
Please join the thousands of individuals across the nation who believe in the cause and will walk in their communities as well.
You can get involved by:
- Registering as a Team Captain
- Joining an existing Team as a new registrant
- Signing up as an individual registrant
- Sponsoring the event
- Joining the event planning committee
- Making a contribution supporting a registrant
The walk will be held November 10, 2012 at the Embarcadero Marina Park South, located behind the San Diego Convention Center. Participants will enjoy the 3 mile loop through Seaport Village to the Midway Museum and back again. The Walk is stroller friendly and well behaved pets on a leash are allowed.
Participants may register at any time leading up to the Walk by choosing the appropriate option under “sign up” on the left side of this page. You will have the option to start a team, join a team, join as an individual or as a volunteer.
All participants who individually raise at least $100.00 will receive a complimentary Fight for Air Walk t-shirt.
A fun kid zone will be available and will include a bounce house, face painters and more!

Embarcadero Marina Park is located directly behind the San Diego Convention Center. To access the park, take Harbor Drive and turn south on Park Blvd (near the Hilton Hotel). Park Blvd turns into Convention Way. The park is located just past Joe's Crab Shack.
Participants are encouraged to take mass transit to the Fight For Air Walk - your trip will improve our air quality! Take the trolley to the Convention Center stop and proceed to the Park from Harbor Drive. For more information, use this Mass Transit link.
Parking meters are available at a low rate. Lots D1 and D2 at the Southwest corner of Park Blvd and Imperial Ave are available for $5, and a free shuttle will run from this lot to the Walk site beginning at 7:30 am. You can walk to the event from these lots - proceed West to the end of the street and take the pedestrian bridge over Harbor Blvd to Park Blvd. Follow the street to the entrance of Embarcadero Marina Park. Many public parking lots are available - however they can be expensive ($10).
We encourage you to fund raise at least $100 toward the cause. This is easier than you think! It is as easy as asking 10 friends for $10. Coaching packets and trainings are available. Please contact our office for more details at 619-683-3464.
