“Hockey fans have the biggest hearts,”

says Walter Gretzky, father of “The Great One” Wayne Gretzky, and long-time lung health advocate. 

“I’m challenging Canada to get out there in their driveways, backyards, or even their living rooms, to have some home hockey fun and show their support for the Lung Health Foundation. Give lung health your best shot!”
