The event is a fun and informative opportunity designed for potential team captains and any other interested participants from companies, organizations, schools and families to learn more about the upcoming October 20 York Fight for Air WALK, an event designed to raise funds and heighten awareness of the seriousness of lung disease.
There will be various stations with lung health exhibits and displays along with information on how to organize a successful team. The “Faces of Lung Disease” presentation will be shown throughout the Open House. Participants will be able to register for the walk at this meeting.
More than 50,000 York County residents suffer from at least one chronic lung disease, such as asthma, chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Proceeds from the walk will continue to support the American Lung Association in Pennsylvania and its efforts to promote lung health and prevent lung disease through education, support, research and advocacy.
