Join the "I Love Lungs" Team

in support of the Ontario Lung Association at the Tamarack Homes Ottawa Race Weekend



Join the “I Love Lungs” Team


Your help is needed, no matter where you live in Ontario. The Lung Association invites you to join our “I Love Lungs” Team, participating in the popular Tamarack Homes Ottawa Race Weekend, May 25th& 26th2013. Raise funds and prepare to walk or run in support of people who struggle to breathe. Participate in the 2km, 5km, 10km, half or full marathon event sporting our red “I Love Lungs” Team shirt, and help raise awareness of asthma, COPD, lung cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, and other lung diseases. In Canada, someone dies every 15 minutes from lung disease. Let’s change that.
