Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! On August 3rd– 5th I will be participating in the 2019 CowaLUNGa Charity Bike Tour for the fifth year in a row. Each year I ride my bicycle 190+ miles over three days to help support the mission of Respiratory Health Association to prevent lung disease, promote clean air and help people live better through education, research and policy change.
This cause means so much to me because my entire family has suffered from the effects of asthma throughout our lives. As a child, I had very bad asthma and as an adult my wife has experienced its effects. But the greatest impact has been on my daughter, who at 6 months old was hospitalized on a ventilator fighting for her life from respiratory failure related to asthma.
I am asking for your help to support my efforts raising money for this great cause. As a lung health champion, my goal is to raise $1500 by August 11th. All donations will support the Respiratory Health Association which is a 501(c)(3) organization so your gift is tax deductible. With your support, Respiratory Health Association will continue to empower thousands of people who live with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, lung cancer and other lung disease and their caregivers through community health programs. Please consider riding with me or making a donation today!
