Do It Yourself Fundraising!

Breathing together to fight lung disease

Each year, businesses, organizations and individuals host events that raise thousands of dollars for The Lung Association, Alberta & NWT.

Planning your own fundraising event can be simple. You could host a garage sale, organize a golf tournament, have a dinner with friends, hold a community charity run or even stage a benefit concert.

Whatever the occasion, you can help us fight lung disease by asking your friends to make a donation in lieu of gifts.

A good example... 

Steve Kresia at B.G.E. Service & Supply Ltd. brought his co-workers, business contacts and friends together for a fun golf tournament in August. They had a wonderfully successful event and were overjoyed when the company president agreed to match all the funds raised to double their contribution. Big or small, every event helps someone breathe easier.

The Lung Association’s toolkit

The Lung Association offers a Powered By Breathing Fundraising 1-2-3 brochure to help you get started on your own fundraising event as well as an informative 12-page booklet that provides everything you need to know about putting together your own event that raises money for The Lung Association.

If you can commit to raising $100 or more, we would love to work with you to make sure your event or activity is a huge success for everyone.

Alberta 2017 Fun! Run/Walk Events

Are you up to the challenge Alberta? Take part in these fun run/walk events to help raise funds for research, prevention and support for patients. Stay tuned for 2017 events and opportunities!

Sign up today to participate at a community event near you — register through The Running Room. These events are being organized and managed by volunteers who are starting a movement in their communities across Alberta to raise money for research, prevention and support for patients who are struggling to breathe every day. 

The Lung Association, Alberta & NWT salutes their efforts as roughly 600,000 Albertans are living with lung disease. One in every five Canadians have lung disease, yet we underestimate the burden of lung disease on the collective health and well-being of our nation. Three major chronic lung diseases — lung cancer, asthma, and COPD — cost Canada’s economy $12 billion in 2010, according to The Conference Board of Canada. 

The need for change starts now, and with your help this summer and fall, you will help The Lung Association get one step closer to creating a world free of lung disease. 

FInd an event near you today.
