What is Fight for Air Walk?
The Fight fir Air Walk is a community event intended to raise funds and awareness for the American Lung Association. Our Walk is 3.1 miles (five kilometers) in length. However, there is a shorter option which is about 1.5 miles. And, we welcome anyone who might want to attend as a Lung Association supporter who may not be able to walk, but can come out for food, fun, and festivities on Walk Day!
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 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?
3.1 miles (five kilometers) in length.
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!
Also, we will have a Silent Auction at the Walk. So, be ready to bid and bid often! We take checks, credit cards or cash.
Are pets allowed?
Absolutely, some of our most loyal walkers are our beloved furry friends.
