Our Vision at the Asthma Society of Canada is to empower every child and adult in Canada with asthma to live an active and symptom-free life.
Our Mission is to be the balanced voice for asthma in Canada, advancing optimal self-management, prevention, research and health care.
3 million people, including 600,000 children in Canada live with asthma, but only 40% are in control of their symptoms. By running with Team Asthma or making a pledge to someone who is running, you can prove asthma isn't about sitting on the sideliness!
You can Join Team Asthma by walking or running wearing our logo, raising money for the Asthma Society of Canada, or taking Asthma Education Kits to provide asthma information to those around you. If you're active and have a connection to asthma, we’re happy to welcome you as part of the team.
We need your help — whether you have asthma, know someone who does, or are interested in making a valuable difference in asthma care and education across Canada.
You can also sponsor a runner or make a donation by going to www.asthma.ca, or searching for the 'Asthma Society of Canada'.
Asthma can be managed, and your participation will help us show Canadians how to manage it.
Please contact Noah Farber by phone (416-787-4050, ext. 100) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about joining Team Asthma!
