Each year, far too many people are affected by lung disease and this is your chance to walk, raise money and make an impact in their honor. By joining the Fight For Air Walk you are making the commitment to fight lung disease so everyone can breathe easier- including you!
Families, individuals and teams join together in a walk to raise awareness for the 35 million Americans who suffer from lung disease. Participants come together to raise funds and further our mission to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.
You can get involved by:

All participants who individually raise at least $100 will receive a walk t-shirt.
We encourage you to raise at least $100 toward the cause. This is easier than you think! It is as easy as asking 10 friends for $10. Coaching packets and trainings are available. Please contact our office for more details (800-LUNG-USA).
