You can survive three days without water, three weeks without food, but only three minutes without air!  Something as simple as breathing is a struggle for one in five British Columbians.

Did you know that lung disease is one of the fastest growing causes of hospitalization, disability, and death in Canada today? Every year lung disease, which includes lung cancer, emphysema, COPD and asthma, changes, cripples and ends lives at an ever-increasing rate.

Wayne Chornyechuk, Sandy Agatiello, Ina Gory, Dr. Wathiq Habeeb, Stacey Schuchardt, and Nicole McGowan have all signed up to cycle 200 km in support of the 2014 BC Lung Association Bicycle Trek For Life and Breath. This will be Wayne’s twentieth consecutive year! Each trekker must raise a minimum of $500 prior to the first day of Trek in order to participate.

Your support helps assure the continuation of the BC Lung Association’s important research project and health education programs and brings important benefits to many people with lung disease and respiratory problems.

We want to thank the Ashcroft Post Office for their continued support by allowing us to get donations for this year’s event. Also, a huge “Thank You” to all the great people who showed their support with their kind and generous donations! If you wish to donate please call me at (250) 453-9062 or donate on line at http://bicycletrek2014.kintera.org/faf/r.asp?t=4&i=1090422&u=1090422-73201547 and then type in the name of the person you are supporting.
