Ready to get Virtual

In order to make this year’s event as interactive as possible, we’ve created a Fight For Air Ride Strava Club! Strava is a free application you can download on your smart phone or create an account online to track your miles as you cycle in support of the American Lung Association. Strava will track your miles automatically on your phone or you can enter them manually on your computer.

Every Mile Counts

FFAR Riders Waiving-Greeting Page-1.jpg The 35th Annual Fight For Air Ride is going VIRTUAL. While we won’t be gathering in-person this year, you can still make every mile count. Please join our virtual Fight for Air Ride event that will take place from now through June 30th. If you are currently registered, you will automatically be converted to a virtual participant.

Through this virtual event, you can stay active (practicing safe social distancing) while supporting the work of the American Lung Association.

Raise or donate $250+ by June 30th to earn your 35th Anniversary Fight for Air Ride jersey. As a virtual rider, you will still have access to your Fight for Air Ride webpage and participant center. It’s also possible to raise funds through Facebook.

Raise $500+ and be entered to win a luxury stay at the Playa Grande Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico! The winner will have 12 months to book their trip. Thank you to Sal & Mary Ellen Rizzo for this experience!

Funds raised through the Fight for Air Ride will support the American Lung Association’s COVID -19 Action Initiative, dedicating $25 million to COVID-19 research.
