Hi Vanessa, 
I have been continuing to reach out to donors for the Fight for Air Walk. In my inquiries, more animal lovers, and very intelligent ones at that, continue to talk about the vivisection in which the American Lung Association partakes. I cannot stress enough just how many people are expressing their opinion about how they hope this ends, and since I am reaching out to them for donations, I feel obligated to express their opinions, and to show them I take the concern seriously. Once again, I hope you will take this matter of compassionate to your higher-ups. Thank you again. Monique

Dave, I am requesting American Lung Association to utilize my sponsorship donations in their efforts other than animal experimentation by forwarding this email thread to one of their "Fight for Air Walk" representatives. I'm keeping your email address private. Please email her if you would like.

Hi, Vanessa. As you can see from this thread, friends of mine are interested in the cause, but many are concerned with animal experimentation currently being practiced by the American Lung Association's research team. Is there a way to request where the sponsorship funds I bring in  for the walk will go, or at least to be acknowledged they will not go into this area of research? 
That would bring peace of mine to many people I know, who would like to donate, but are hesitant.

Thank you so much,
Monique

I was told that after I had been signed up for many months.
That's one of the reasons I am going to talk about veganism.

Please sponsor me with $5 for the 2.55 mile 2012 American Lung Association Fight for Air Walk, which I'm registered for on the Santa Monica Promenade 8am - Noon on Sun. 10/21. 
Donate here: https://secure3.convio.net/ala/site/Donation2?idb=628288995&df_id=14040&FR_ID=6160&PROXY_ID=4709379&PROXY_TYPE=20&14040.donation=form1&JServSessionIdr004=kpeuh86db1.app305b Make a tax-deductible donation that will save lives on behalf of Monique Lukens. I know times are tough, so only if you can.

Also know I'm committed to talking/outreaching about the vegan cause w/ reps from American Lung Association. A plant based diet promotes healthy lungs in so many ways. Wonder how? Ask.

Lastly, if anyone would like to walk with me, please let me know and join me: http://lung.org/pledge-events/ca/santa-monica-walk-fy13/local/event-information.html
