Dear friends, family and coworkers,
I recently learned two important facts about lung disease:
1) Lung disease is the second leading and fastest rising cause of death, and
2) Lung disease and breathing problems are the leading cause of infant deaths in the U.S.
To help address this problem, I've decided to participate in Breathe California's Bike 4 Breath charity ride on Saturday, July 12th, 2014 in San Mateo.
I've set a personal fundraising goal and need your help and support to get there! 100% of every dollar I raise will help our local communities by supporting lung disease research, outreach and education, smoking cessation and clean air advocacy. Your support will make a difference to the lives of those who suffer from poor lung health.
You can make a secure online donation on this page. Alternatively, you can write a check (payable to Breathe California with my name written in the NOTES section) and mail it to:
Attn: Bike 4 Breath
2171 Junipero Serra Blvd., Suite #720
Daly City, CA 94014
Together we can reduce air pollution, tobacco use (especially among teens!), and deaths from lung diseases such as asthma, COPD and cancer.
Thank you for your support!
