Let’s make sure everyone can benefit from healthy air and lungs.
Last year I rode my first Reach the Beach Ride at age 74 with my two sons, Kevin and Aaron. Last year, during the entire summer in Montana, I trained for this ride. It was important for me to be in shape and join my two sons and help contribute to the mission of the American Lung Association. This year the three of us will be joined by my grandson, Isaac. Three generations of Lefohn will form Team Lefohn.
Why do I ride? First, let’s make sure everyone can benefit from healthy air and lungs. I ride to represent all those who suffer from lung disease, especially those who are close to my heart. Second, I believe in the American Lung Association’s mission. Every year I participate as a research scientist in the American Lung Association’s State of the Air Report. This report presents a summary of the Nation's air quality and is followed closely by the public, policymakers, the US Congress, and the worldwide press. Third, I ride to honor those of my relatives and friends who have lung cancer. The American Lung Association works to help those who have lung cancer, as well as their loved ones who are there to support them.
Your donation helps support the American Lung Association's work. Your generosity would mean a lot to me and all those who benefit from the work of the American Lung Association.
Lung disease is on the rise and your donation would help fund research and provide education and advocacy efforts. One pedal at a time, you can help me ride for a better tomorrow.
Together we can fight lung disease successfully! I appreciate your support!
