Freedman Seating is participating in the Respiratory Health Association's efforts to fight lung disease on Sunday, February 22nd.
Each year more than 4,000 people climb to the top of John Hancock Center to raise funds for lung disease research, advocacy and education. More than 67% of participants indicated they or someone they know has been touched by a form of lung disease. Participants choose from two climbing categories--full climb (94 floors) or half climb (52 floors).
With your support, Respiratory Health Association has been able to fund lung cancer and COPD research at local research institutions and to teach thousands of underserved children in metropolitan Chicago how to manage their asthma. You have helped provide programs and other resources for people living with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). You have helped pass laws to reduce diesel engine idling and make
higher education campuses smoke-free to protect the air all of us breathe. Due to RHA’s work and your support, recently, Chicago became the first city in the United States to ban the sale of menthol-flavored cigarettes within 500 feet of schools. E-cigarettes are now part of Chicago Clean Indoor Air Act and they must be sold behind the counter at all retailers in Illinois.
You make a difference to enable RHA to reach thousands of people in metropolitan Chicago affected by lung disease. Our website resources allow us to reach even more! For more information regarding RHA programs, or to explore some of our website resources, please visit www.lungchicago.org.
