Dear friends, family and coworkers,
Since starting my work at Breathe CA, I have learned many things about lung disease - did you know that lung disease is the second leading and fastest rising cause of death?
I've also learned that we can make a difference, right here on the local level, helping to prevent lung disease and helping those who already face the challenges of lung disease. Breathe California helps people quit smoking, helps makes sure teens never start, provides resources for people living with COPD, helps people manage their asthma with classes and resources and more. Breathe also advocates on the local level to fight for clean air legislation that helps keep our air clean and breathable!
I'm proud to participate in Breathe California's Bike 4 Breath charity ride on Saturday, July 11th, 2015 in Atherton.
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!
