I am back again doing my part to raise money for the American Lung Association's (ALA) efforts to promote lung health, conduct related research and most recently launch the COVID-19 Action Initiative. Here is a link to give some detail to this timely and important project: https://www.lung.org/lung-health-diseases/lung-disease-lookup/covid-19/action-initiative .
I do this each year by riding in the Trek Across Maine, ALA's largest annual fundraiser. Last year's and this year's Treks are virtual to comply with guidelines from the CDC and local government officials, and to put the health and well-being of our community first and foremost. But we can do virtual by riding our own miles and fundraising through June 20, 2021.
This year’s Trek has special meaning for me - I recently learned that a relative of mine is suffering from asthma and needs oxygen 24/7.
As in the past, I will make my own personal donation and I am asking you to donate to this worthy cause as well. To make a donation by credit card, click on the Donate Now button above on this page. Or you can donate by check payable to “American Lung Association” and sent to me at 34 Dovetail Lane, Dover, NH 03820. A donation as little as $10, $20 or $25 can help in a big way when combined with many other small donations adding up to substantial amounts.
Please give this request serious consideration, and if you are not in a position to donate this year, please just send me wishes for ‘good luck” in my riding and fundraising.
