Lung Health Family Members in the News

7 year old Colton signed up for the challenge and passed his goal within the first hour!

Hi my name is Colton, I am 7yrs old from Brantford, ON. I am supporting the Lung Health Foundation in honour of my Gramps, who recently passed away from respiratory failure caused by an advanced lung infection. Hockey was both our passion, and this is a great way for me to honour him and hopefully raise some money and help raise awareness.
