IBEW 569 is strengthening our partnership with the American Lung Association to fight lung disease. We are especially concerned about our members and families in the Imperial Valley where cases of lung disease and asthma are increasing due to the drying-up of the Salton Sea. We are hopeful that we can work together to invest in Salton Sea solutions, including geothermal energy.
Join IBEW 569 and walk with our team on Sunday, November 8, at the LUNG FORCE Walk at the Embarcadero Marina Park South!
This year’s exciting event includes LUNG FORCE passport travel, family fun, musical performances by DJ Sage, a special appearance by the San Diego Padres Pad Squad and Friar, Dr. Cleo of Molina Healthcare, LUNG FORCE Hero meet & greet, a visit by our FORCE, the Star Wars characters, and a wonderful 5K walk in the park along the water as well as a shorter LUNG FORCE loop option, that will be marked by Turquoise pinwheels. Well behaved dogs on leash are welcome.
