Breathing together to fight lung disease
Each year, businesses, organizations and individuals host events that raise thousands of dollars for The Lung Association, Alberta & NWT.
Planning your own fundraising event can be simple. You could host a garage sale, organize a golf tournament, have a dinner with friends, hold a community charity run or even stage a benefit concert.
Whatever the occasion, you can help us fight lung disease by asking your friends to make a donation in lieu of gifts.
A few examples...
