Help Manitobans Breathe for just $3! Join the Great Canadian Giving Challenge
On Wednesday, June 1, the Manitoba Lung Association (MLA) will launch a campaign to raise funds in support of research that may help Manitobans living with a life-threatening lung disease breathe a whole lot easier.
The campaign is part of the Great Canadian Giving Challenge. Every donation for $3 or more to the Manitoba Lung Association through CanadaHelps.org in the month of June automatically enters the Association to win a $10,000 donation from The GIV3 Foundation.
"$10,000 would breathe new life into research projects we support provincially and nationally," says Neil Johnston, Interim President & CEO, Manitoba Lung Association. "We need to invest in this research now, not later, because one in five Manitobans are already living with chronic pulmonary lung disease, asthma or lung cancer - and the number is steadily rising."
In addition, Johnston says chronic lung diseases cost the Canadian economy an estimated $12 billion annually.Read our complete media release.
