The AIR Run is a nationwide fundraising event committed to taking steps the change the world.

 We're raising money to build a school in Latin America! Let's get the kids in our lives involved as well!

The first AIR Run will take place on September 13th, 2014 in NYC. This is going to be an exciting 5k through Central Park (rain or shine)! Those who can’t physically run with us are committing to covering the same distance no matter where they are in the world! It can be 3.1 miles on a treadmill, a local track…doesn't matter. Only requirement is that it’s done someplace with air. Regardless of where we are, we are all committed “taking the steps” to make this world a better place! Let's get out there and run/walk, but let's bring the kids in our lives with us and let them know that they are helping build a school for other kids in the world!

 

All finishers receiver an official AIR Run sticker. Oh come on! Stickers are cool no matter how old you are!

 

The organization we are donating to during the first race is Hug It Forward! Hug It Forward is a grass-roots organization that facilitates education and awareness by empowering communities in Latin America to build “bottle schools”. Bottle schools are built using “eco-brick”: plastic bottles stuffed with inorganic trash. Entire communities come together to build a more sustainable educational infrastructure for their future. Hug It Forward’s goal is to share the bottle school technology so that communities all over the world can build their own bottle school. Will you join us in raising funds to build one in Latin America?!
