American Lung Association in California Walks to Fight For Air
The American Lung Association in California hosts its 4th annual Fight For Air Walk on Sunday, Oct. 20, to raise funds and awareness in support of healthy lungs and clean air. The Fight For Air Walk, a two-and-a-half mile route beginning and ending at Downtown Santa Monica, will feature a silent auction and festival-type atmosphere. With scenic ocean views along the way, it will be a great destination for all Angelenos to come out and spend the day with family and friends.
The Fight For Air Walk has attracted participants whose lives have been impacted by lung disease. Lung disease is the third leading cause of death in the United States, and is responsible for one in seven deaths nationwide. Lung disease is particularly prevalent in California. More than ninety percent of Californians live in areas with unhealthy air which contributes to breathing problems for the nearly five million of our state’s citizens afflicted with asthma, including nearly one million children.
