AIR POWER GAMES 2019
Hosted by: CHOC Children’s Breathmobile TM

Each year the program hosts about 100 asthmatic children and their families. Children participate by age group in track and field events including, long jump, 50, and 100, meter sprints. There is an educational rotation for the participant children and their families that teach them about the relationship between asthma and exercise and the importance of staying healthy and fit and keeping their asthma under control.

The games provide inspiration for children to continue their athletic and educational endeavors. By holding the event on a campus such as Santa Ana College, many children are introduced to the notion that they too can one-day attend college and perhaps be a member of one of the athletic teams or clubs while continuing their higher education.

Community partners and local organizations participate by presenting their services to our families at informational table/booths. Awards are presented to all participants along with a gift bag with donations from the event sponsors. Children and their parents are entered for raffle prize drawings for attending the educational sessions. Prizes include items such as: bikes, scooters, soccer balls and other healthy lifestyle items.
