Mesa, AZ (PRWEB) April 19, 2010 -- Respiratory therapist school, Pima Medical Institute in Mesa, which offers respiratory therapy career training and several other health care-related career training programs, raised more than $16,000 for the American Lung Association in efforts surrounding the Phoenix Asthma Walk. The annual fundraising walk took place on Saturday, April 10, at the Scottsdale Civic Center Mall.

More than 125 Pima students and staff, including students who are attending the respiratory therapist school, participated in a 5k walk and enjoyed a pancake breakfast following the walk.

The American Lung Association is an organization that is close to the hearts of respiratory therapy school students, since the students are dedicating their lives to helping other breathe easier. However, the entire Pima Medical Institute Mesa campus pulled together to help make the fundraising efforts a success.

"Our campus really pulled together as a team to make these amazing accomplishments," said Alan Crawford, RRT-NPS, respiratory therapy instructor who headed up the fundraising efforts. "We have energetic and creative students with a very supportive staff to back them. The student body - not just one program, but the entire campus -really worked hard to earn the money we did."

In addition to donations collected by the walkers themselves, the campus hosted a rummage sale and went into the community to request team sponsorships from local businesses.
