The Fight For Air Run/Walk is a community event intended to raise funds and awareness for the American Lung Association. Our event is a 3.1 miles course (five kilometers) in length and some people walk the distance and other run. A one mile course is also available for walkers. 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 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. In short, we need help to rally the troops and the best people for the job are always our team captains.
ARE PETS ALLOWED?
Dogs, cats and other pets can be triggers for those who suffer from asthma. For the health and safety of the race participants, they should not be brought to this event by participants or event guests. Please note that Belle Isle does allow leashed dogs that are under the control of their owner into the park, so you may encounter dogs while at the park.
IS THERE A PACKET PICK UP?
This event will not host a packet pick-up. Packets that include race bibs and event t-shirts will be available during registration the day of the event.
WILL THERE BE WATER AND MEDICAL SERVICE AVAILABLE?
Yes, water is located at designated stations throughout the RUN/Walk. Medical staff will also be on-site for those who need any assistance throughout the event. Any volunteer can assist you and put you in contact with medical personnel.
