Each year, too many lives are lost to lung disease and this is your chance to walk or run, raise money and make an impact in their honor. By joining the Fight for Air Walk/Run you are making the commitment to fight lung disease so everyone can breathe easier - including you!
Families, individuals and teams join together in 5K (3.1 mile) walk/run to raise awareness for the 35 million Americans who suffer from lung disease including asthma, COPD and lung cancer. Participants work together to raise valuable funds to continue the work of the American Lung Association to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.
Please join the thousands of individuals across the nation who believe in the cause and will walk or run in their communities as well.
