They routinely visit elementary schools for the Open Airways for Schools Program, an asthma management program for third through fifth-graders, and their team has been one of the top teams for the annual Fight for Air Run/Walk.
Seminole State College is a sponsor of this year's fight for Air Run/Walk, and the Asthma Assassins, led by Program Manager Mark Carey and Professor Michael Santiago, have already raised almost $2,000.
