Together, we raised $94,000+ and counting.

Your Participation at the Fight For Air Ride makes our work possible to support all Chicagoans living with lung disease. Every dollar raised supports the Lung Association’s research, educational programs and advocacy efforts.

It’s not too late to earn your 2021 Fight For Air Ride Jersey! Fundraise $1,500 by November 1st to receive this year’s jersey and ONE entry into a drawing for a luxury stay at the Playa Grande Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (two opportunities thanks to Sal and Mary Ellen Rizzo!)

      Why We Need You in the Fight

      In March, the American Lung Association launched a $25 million initiative to end COVID-19 and defend against future respiratory virus pandemics. At the same time, we're continuing our advocacy work to support clean air and redoubling our long-term commitments to lifesaving research.
