The Fight For Air Walk will be held on Saturday, June 11th at Butler University.
Participants can participate in either a 5K (3.1 miles) walk or a 1-mile walk route throughout campus and the Canal Tow Path. The 1-mile walk route is designated for individuals with lung disease and their family members as well as young families. Anyone is welcome to participate in the 5K option.
Activities, which include music, breakfast, sponsor booths, health screenings, and kids' entertainment begin at 8:00 am just in front of Hinkle Fieldhouse. At 9:00 am, the 5K walk will begin. At 9:30 am, the 1-Mile walk begins. All walkers regardless of which route they are participating in should plan on arriving at least one half hour before their walk begins to check in.
All participants who individually raise $100 or more will receive a complimentary Fight For Air Walk t-shirt the morning of the event.
Parking is available at Hinkle Fieldhouse with an over flow lot at Clowes Memorial Hall.
