GreenGeeks sponsorship of The American Lung Association
GreenGeeks is proudly sponsoring The American Lung Association's Fight For Air Climb at the Aon Center in downtown Los Angeles.
The climb will be held on Saturday April 24, 2010 to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day.
All of us at GreenGeeks are proud of our efforts to help promote Green Energy in the web hosting industry and for the businesses we support. We were thrilled when the American Lung Association approached us to sponsor their Earth Day event.
I have lived in Los Angeles most of my life and I suffer from bad allergies. The air quality in Los Angeles has had a profoundly negative impact on my life especially through childhood. Although my allergies became less pronounced in my mid thirties, I still suffer when there are heightened levels of pollution in the air.
The current 2008 Federal Standard for air quality measures days exceeding .075 part per million for 8 hours or longer. In 1976 Los Angeles had 213 days over the new federal standard limit with a high of 234 days in 1979. By 2008 the number of days exceeding the 8 hour limit was brought down to 120 days with a low of 108 days in 2007.
Air quality in Los Angeles has improved over the last 3 decades but there is more to be done to improve air quality in all our communities. I am thankful to the American Lung Association for approaching us for the opportunity to work with them and I look forward to the climb and the event.
If you are in Los Angeles on April 24th we hope you will join us at the Fight For Air Climb, if you cannot be there, perhaps you might find a couple flights of stairs you can climb that day to symbolically reinforce our joint commitment to fight for better air quality for ourselves and for future generations to come.
Here's to breathing cleaner air!
