How do my donations help?
With the generous support of people like you, the American Lung Association in Ohio saves lives by impoving lung health and preventing lung disease. 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 the Fight for Air Walk?
The Fight fir Air Walk is a community event intended to raise funds and awareness for the American Lung Association.
Generally, our events are 3.1 miles (five kilometers) in length and some people walk the distance and others run. There are usually shorter walk options on event day for those who are unable to complete such a distance.
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 time should I be there?
Registration begins at 9:00 am and the walk starts at 10:00 a.m. Plan to arrive at Jacobs Pavilion ½ hour to 45 minutes in advance to avoid the last minute rush of participants that are registering.
Where should I park?
You will park in the lot in front of the Powerhouse, which is right next to Jacobs Pavilion. There will be volunteers directing you where to park.
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?
There are 2 routes: 3 miles and a 1 mile. Participants can choose either route to walk at his or her own pace along downtown Cleveland's waterfront and many attractions.
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, there will be a raffle so you may want to come prepared to purchase raffle tickets.
Are pets allowed?
Dogs are allowed if they are well behaved and crowd friendly. Please come prepared to clean up any mess your dog may make during the event.
