■ By MICHAEL GOUGIS Contributing Writer Engineers being the ultimate pragmatists, they probably appreciate an opportunity to accomplish two things at once more than others. So the folks who helped plan the Employees Community Fund of Boeing California 5K walks appealed to their colleagues by pointing out that participating in the fundraisers would help them reach their personal fitness goals as well. Raise money for the community and click off some steps for

the Boeing On The Move fitness program at the same time? Done. More than 1,000 Boeing employees slipped on athletic shoes for lunch and participated in a series of five kilometer walks across Boeing’s Southern California campuses this summer. They ran, they walked, and in doing so, helped raise thousands of dollars for local nonprofits. Kehinde Aribigbola, a supply chain management analyst for the C-17 program in Long Beach, led this year’s ECF walk in Long Beach because of the success of the prior two, and because of her belief in the ECF program.

“I joined the ECF planning committee here in Long Beach about a year ago. I really like what ECF does, and I wanted to be part of that. I thought joining the planning committee was a great way to do that,” Aribigbola says. “At the beginning of the year we go over all of our major events and everyone volunteers for an activity that they want to lead. I wanted to lead the walk so I volunteered for that. “(For) our walks the past two years, the turnout was always big. There was always so much energy. I thought it would be a really great opportunity to lead that and see if we could go even

bigger, get more people talking about ECF, get more contributions. The last two walks were awesome, and I wanted to be a part of that.” Aribigbola participates in 5K run/walks on her own, so she was able to offer encouragement to the reluctant from her own personal point of view. Maybe that’s how the Long Beach walk ended up with 300 people participating in the June 25th event; Aribigbola was able to convince people that they could do what they didn’t think they could do.

Homeboy Industries Homeboy Industries provides one answer to the question: What do you do with an at-risk person who wants out? Not an easy question to answer. Trouble in general is easy to get into and difficult to get out of. Since 1988, Father Gregory Boyle has been trying to make it possible for those who want to turn their lives around to do so. With the motto “Nothing Stops A Bullet Like A Job” stating its philosophy clearly and unequivocally, the small jobs program he started back then has grown into Homeboy Industries. Today, Homeboy Industries operates a bakery, a grocery, farmers markets, a diner, Homegirl Cafe and Catering, and Homeboy and Homegirl merchandising. Not only do those operations provide employment opportunities for at-risk individuals, they help provide funding for a number of support operations such as case management, job training, counseling and something simple yet fundamental – tattoo removal.

“We had some people, when we told them how far it was, they said, ‘No! We can't do that!’” Aribigbola says. “And we said, ‘Yes, you can. It’s really fun.’” The turnout at El Segundo was even bigger, with more than 400 participants involved in the July 24th event. For Amalia Aviles, solar ray electrical engineer at the spacecraft facility and leader of the ECF walk team, the big turnout was a big deal. Aviles already was a member of the ECF, but an event at the El Segundo facility prompted her to take a closer look at what the fund did and how important it was. ECF helps support Homeboy Industries, a nonprofit dedicated to gang intervention, rehabilitation and re-introducing incarcerated people back into the mainstream of life. Aviles attended a presentation at the El Segundo site by one of the leaders of Homeboy, and the presentation changed the way she looked at ECF. “That was the real message about what ECF does,” Aviles says. “I was already a member of ECF, but I didn’t really connect to it as much as I did after I heard that story and I realized, wow, we really make a difference.” Aviles increased her involvement with ECF, and that led to her leading the ECF walk. The success of the event was critical for ECF at El Segundo, says Jim Schultz, deputy director of the Satellite Development Center in El Segundo and the facility’s ECF Executive Champion. “The (walk) provided an opportunity for employees to demonstrate their support – those who already contribute – and to raise awareness to increase our ECF participation. It’s a valued program, it’s important to show our support, and we need to improve our support,” Schultz says. “Amalia is my go-to. She’s my right hand right now. She’s doing a wonderful job.” And yeah, Aviles was well qualified to use some of the same persuasive logic that Aribigbola used in Long Beach when potential participants objected.

“I do half marathons,” Aviles says. “I’m not the first person who finishes them, but I get them done in under three hours.” Over in Huntington Beach, Michelle Steddum also was trying to raise the level of awareness at that facility of the employee fund and the positive impact it had on the local community. Steddum, a business manager for the Advanced Network & Space Systems at the facility, helped round up the needed volunteers, and arranged for a couple of the agencies supported by ECF to show up on the day of the walk and help put on the event. Steddum and the crew upped the ante a bit by entering every finisher's name into a raffle; the winner would be able to select a recipient agency to receive a $500 ECF grant. The event was a complete success, with 196 participants completing the course on a beautiful, sunny Southern California summer day. “You couldn]t have asked for a better day,” Steddum says. “I did it for the ECF, but I got my credits toward my Boeing On The Move goal, because I was running around so much!” Overall, the four ECF walks this summer – in El Segundo, Huntington Beach, and the Douglas Complex and the C-17 Complex in Long Beach – drew 1,050 employees as participants. More than 30 employees stepped forward and organized and executed the events, and Boeing contributed $69,500 in matching funds to the ECF. Very effective. An engineer would approve. ■

Lung Association – A Drug-Free Treatment For Asthma? Could a device used to treat sleep apnea also help control asthma? The American Lung Association’s Asthma Clinical Research Centers (ACRC) is trying to answer that question. The network is currently recruiting asthma patients for a study to examining whether the use of Continued Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), a safe, non-pharmaceutical device that is used for sleep apnea can also improve asthma control. The ACRC’s current study, the Effect of Positive Airway pressure on Reducing Airway Reactivity in Patients with Asthma (CPAP), is examining whether the use of CPAP, which keeps airways open during sleep, makes airways more relaxed and thus improves asthma symptoms. With CPAP treatment, clean, humidified air is blown into the lungs in order to prevent airways from collapsing. Thus the chest and lungs are more expanded helping patients to breathe better. “If CPAP is found to be effective, this will introduce an entirely new way to treat asthma without medication.” states Robert Wise, MD, director of the American Lung Association Asthma Clinical Research Centers Network “If we can reduce the number of inhalers and frequency of inhaled rescue medication with this new treatment, it will not only relieve the burden of asthma but improve their quality of life as well”. The CPAP clinical trial is currently recruiting non-smokers between the ages of 15-60 with history of asthma for their four month study. Learn more about the CPAP study. Asthma is a common lung disease that makes breathing difficult for millions of Americans, both young and old. In 2011, it was estimated that 25.9 million Americans currently had asthma, including 7.1 million children. Asthma is the cause of nearly 11 million ambulatory physician encounters and 440,000 hospitalizations annually. The American Lung Association Asthma Clinical Research Centers (ACRC) is a network of 18 centers across the U.S. and a data coordinating center at Johns Hopkins conducting large scale clinical trials with the mission to advance the clinical care and treatment of people with asthma. As a multicentered network, the ACRC has focused on conducting effectiveness trials due to its



ability to enroll large numbers of patients from diverse populations to ensure that the research findings are relevant to large groups of patients and can be interpreted with the highest level of scientific authority.

Protocols Currently Recruiting Patients The American Lung Association Asthma Clinical Research Centers (ACRC) is currently recruiting patients to participate in the following studies. If interested, please complete the web form at:, and someone from your local ACRC will contact you. Long-acting Beta Agonist Step-Down Study (LASST) Co-funded by GlaxoSmithKline The LASST study is seeking the best way to reduce treatment in patients with well-controlled asthma. Exploratory analyses will include assessing risk factors for step-down failure and assessing the optimal duration of time that asthma control should be maintained before therapy is reduced. Effect of Positive Airway Pressure on Reducing Airway Reactivity in Patients with Asthma (CPAP) Co-funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute As stated earlier, the CPAP study is examining whether the use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), an effective treatment for sleep apnea, could improve asthma control. The development of alternative asthma treatments is crucial as many patients are unable or unwilling to use current drug therapies, such as short-acting bronchodilators and inhaled corticosteroids due to their high cost and the increasing concerns about long-term adverse effects. Smoking Asthmatics Pilot Study (SAPS) Co-funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute Evidence exists that smokers are relatively resistant to standard asthma treatments compared to non-smoking asthmatics. Paradoxically, asthmatics who smoke are routinely excluded from studies of treatments for asthma. This feasibility trial will evaluate the performance of standard measures of asthma control in treatment outcomes among asthmatics who smoke in preparation for a future full scale trial. ■
