Thank you for your interest in supporting the World Lung Foundation at the NYC Half Marathon this March.

World Lung Foundation was established in response to the global epidemic of lung disease which kills 10 million people every year. This year, our team will raise funds to support treatment of asthma, which afflicts nearly 300 million people around the world and causes more than 200,000 deaths each year.  Although people of all ages in all countries suffer from asthma, the burden it creates for both patients and healthcare systems is highest in low and middle-income countries. 

For the 2010 NYC Half Marathon, all proceeds will go towards treatment and care for asthma patients in these countries.

WLF would like to thank the sponsor of its 2010 NYC Half-Marathon team, signature bank.
