Help us send a child to asthma camp!

Would you like make a difference in the life of a child suffering from severe asthma? Now you can!

The Omnitrans team will be pulling on their sneakers and joining the American Lung Association’s Fight for Air Walk. The event will be held on Sunday, November 3rd at 9:00 a.m.  at Mathis Bros. Furniture in Ontario, California.

The American Lung Association is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through education, advocacy and research.  Its Fight for Air Walk fundraisers help increase awareness and raise funds to support lung health within our own communities.

As their goal this year, the Omnitrans team hopes to raise $1500 to give a child the opportunity to experience summer camp at SCAMP.

“Many children with severe asthma are unable to attend a regular camp because the facilities just aren’t equipped to supervise their treatment,” says Omnitrans outreach specialist Nicole Ramos. “SCAMP (Southern California Asthma Management Program) helps kids learn to manage their asthma through fun, interactive lessons and gives them with the opportunity to enjoy great camp activities at the same time. They get to experience everything from hiking and swimming to arts and crafts–and even try their hand at archery and rock wall climbing! It’s a great cause, and one we’re proud to support.”
