Fight for Air Walk 2012

On Saturday November 10, 2012, USD participated in the annual Fight for Air 5k Walk sponsored by the American Lung Association. The American Lung Association is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease. When you join the American Lung Association in the fight for healthy lungs and healthy air, you help save lives today and keep America healthy tomorrow.

 

 

The Fight for Air Walk is just one of the many ways in which the Office of Sustainability gives back to the greater community and world through the involvement of Paula Morreale and Michael Catanzaro on the Leadership Board Committee. This is the third year the Office of Sustainability was involved on the Leadership Board Committee in addition to participating in the walk.

 

 

 

 

 

USD had the largest team at the walk with over 150 undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and staff. USD was also able to raise over $3,000 through both individual and corporate donations. Over 70 people on the USD team took the trolley downtown to the walk at the Embarcadero Marina, saving over 1,820 pound of CO2. With such a successful day, the Office of Sustainability looks forward to planning and walking for this important cause next year!
