Each year, too many lives are lost to lung disease and this is your chance to walk, raise money and make an impact in their honor. By joining the Fight for 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 asthma. Participants work together to fundraise.
Please join the thousands of individuals across the nation who believe in the cause and will walk in their communities as well.
You can get involved by:
- Registering as a Team Captain
- Joining an existing Team as a new registrant
- Signing up as an individual registrant
- Sponsoring the event
- Volunteering for the event
- Making a contribution supporting a registrant
All walkers will receive free admission and parking to the Milwaukee County Zoo.
You may register at any time on the www.fightforairwalk.org website. The walk will be held on the first Sunday in October at the Milwauke County Zoo. Registration opens at 8:00 a.m. and the Walk begins at 9:00 a.m.
All participants who individually raise at least $100 will receive a complimentary t-shirt.

Purchase a special reminder of why we walk
Mission markers will be placed along the walk route for those you are walking in honor of or in memory of a loved one. Once the walk is over, take your mission marker home and put it in your own garden to continue to honor your loved ones.
Cost: 1 for a $10 donation, or 3 for a $25 donation.
Order your mission marker ahead of time by contacting the American Lung Association at 262.703.4200 or email@example.com. They will also be available for purchase the morning of the walk.
