How do my donations help?
With the generous support of people like you, the American Lung Association in Kentucky saves lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease. Today, with over 700,000 men, women, and children in Kentucky and Southern Indiana affected by lung disease, our fight is more important than ever. Eighty-one cents of every dollar raised by our organization goes directly to programs.
What is the Fight for Air Walk?
The Fight For Air Walk is a family-friendly community event intended to raise funds and awareness for the American Lung Association.
Walks are being held nationwide in an effort to bring attention to lung diseases such as Asthma, COPD, and Lung Cancer. Your participation will raise the funds necessary to provide life saving education, research and advocacy so we can continue our work to promote lung health and prevent lung disease.
What time should I be there?
Walk registration and festivities begin at 8:00 am. Festivities include activities for the whole family, including face painting, exhibitors, team pictures, music, and more. The walk will begin at 9:00 am.
Where should I park?
Follow signs for the Iroquios Park Amphitheater (near the intersection of New Cut Road and Kenwood Drive). The parking area is just south of the Amphitheater off of New Cut Road.
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 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 luncheon. 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 walk?
Two leisurely and scenic walk routes are available: 1 and 3 miles.
What do I bring with me on the day of the event?
Please bring any fundraising dollars you have collected to turn in during check-in. If you are a team captain, you can bring a roster of your team members and include how much each team member has raised. Wear weather-appropriate clothing, comfortable shoes, and sun block depending on the condition for the day, but most importantly, please bring a positive attitude and lots of energy!
Are pets allowed?
Dogs are allowed if they are well behaved and crowd friendly.
