What is the Fight for Air Run/Walk?
The Fight for Air Run/Walk--Halloween Hustle 5K & Scary Scamper Kids' Run is a community event intended to raise funds and awareness for the American Lung Association in Georgia. Generally, our events are 3.1 miles (five kilometers) in length and some people walk the distance and others run. Run/Walks are being held nationwide in an effort to bring attention to this devastating chronic disease. We know a lot about lung disease, but there is so much we don't know. Your participation will raise the funds necessary to provide life saving education, research and advocacy so we can beat lung disease and soon find a cure.

What is a team captain?
Being a team captain is easy. Captains gather together a few friends or family members and encourage them to participate in the event together. Each team captain helps to coordinate the online registration of these friends as well as setting a fundraising goal for the team overall. Team Captains should encourage their participants to personalize their fundraising pages, send e-mails to other friends and family, hit their overall goals, show up to the event and have a great time. Some team captains organize gatherings before or after the walk for their team members, but this is not required. Sometimes the team captain serves as a representative at the annual event kickoff. In short, we need help to rally the troops and the best people for the job are always our team captains.
How far is the run/walk?
5 kilometers (or 3.1 miles)
What do I bring with me on the day of the event?
Please bring any fundraising dollars you have collected and not yet turned in. Please bring a roster of your team members if you are the captain as well as how much each person raised if not already online. You may wish to bring a bottle of water and wear sunscreen depending on the conditions for the day, but most importantly, please bring a positive attitude and lots of energy!
