We don't realize how precious each breath is until it's a struggle.
I'm riding in the American Lung Association's 2017 Reach The Beach - Washington bike event because I can, and because so many can't. I'm also riding for my mother, who we lost this fall to COPD. So the opportunity to raise awareness and raise funds in support of clean air and healthy lungs is an especially poignant gift this year.
Your donation will help fund critical research and also provide education and advocacy efforts. It will make a difference in the lives of those with lung disease and their families—not simply because it will help sustain ongoing programs, but equally important because it will serve as a reminder of what we can accomplish together.

Together we can fight lung disease successfully!
