September 29, 2015 – DKI, North America’s largest disaster restoration contracting organization, announced today that one of its Member Companies, American Integrity Restoration (AIR) is sponsoring the Glastonbury Chamber of Commerce Applefest 5K on Sunday, October 18 at 8 AM at the Riverfront Park.

For the past five years, the Glastonbury Chamber of Commerce has chosen a local family, or one with local ties, to sponsor in their annual “Running for a Reason” 5k race. AIR sponsors the event each year and donates $10 to the family for every registered Team Hot AIR runner. This year the race is in honor of Nora (Schwarz) Mercier, who was diagnosed last year with stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Nora, her two daughters and husband fight every day to make sure laughter and hope still spills from their home. If there is any message she could send, it would be to “savor the present moments, hug a little tighter and put your faith in God.”

If you wish to join AIR and Team Hot AIR, please register online at Don’t forget to write in Team Hot AIR, so donations can be given to Nora and her family.  All team Hot AIR runners will receive a free AIR “Running for a Reason” t-shirt, and the largest family to register and run will also receive a prize.  If you have any questions, email Allegra Weir at

“It is important for us to help our customers and be of assistance during a trying time, as well as to give back to the community and families within our community.  Our Running for a Reason campaign is close to our hearts here at AIR,” stated Steve Weir, owner of AIR.
