Breathe in. Breathe out. Don't panic.
Did you know:
1 in 5 Canadians has a form of lung disease.
13% of Canadian children have asthma.
COPD is a major cause of hospitalization.
Lung disease is one of the leading causes of death.
Lung disease - be it asthma, COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, interstitial lung disease, COVID-19 - really effing sucks.
We wanted to put our movement to good use, raise awareness, and celebrate those of us that suffer from lung disease.
We have each pledged to walk/run/hike/move 100 kms each this month, with a specified amount (be it 5 cents a km, one dollar, 10 dollars, every penny matters) donated per km.
All funds raised goes directly to the lung-saver campaign through the American Lung Association.
Let's get moving and save a lung!
