Dear friends and family,
Did you know that lung disease is the second leading and fastest rising cause of death?
Or that lung disease and breathing problems are the leading cause of infant deaths in the U.S.?
My friend Josh's father died of lung disease. Out of sympathy for Josh, and to help address this problem, I'm participating in Breathe California's Bike 4 Breath charity ride tomorrow. I plan to ride 70 miles.
I have a personal fundraising goal and ask for 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. Can you please donate $10 to help me reach my goal? I know I am late in asking for your support, but donations can still be made throughout July.
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, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cancer.
Thank you for your support!
