HOW DO MY DONATIONS HELP?
With the generous support of people like you, the American Lung Association in the Northeast saves lives by fighting for healthy lungs and healthy air. Today, our fight is more important than ever. Eighty-one cents of every dollar raised by our organization goes directly to education, research and advocacy.
WHAT IS FIGHT FOR AIR RUN/WALK?
The Fight fir Air Run/Walk is a community event intended to raise funds and awareness for the American Lung Association. Our event is 3.1 miles (five kilometers) in length. Some people walk the distance and others run. Events 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.
HOW FAR IS THE RUN/WALK?
The course is 3.1 miles (5 kilometers).
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
ARE PETS ALLOWED?
