Message from the President & CEO

Spring is finally hear, and we couldn't be happier! While each season presents its own set of irritants when it comes to lung disease, we're pleased to be entering into the season of growth and rejuvenation! There is nothing like the rebirth of green colours on the landscape to put a “spring” in your step and have you looking forward to warmer days ahead!

Once again, we want to thank you for your continued support of the Lung Association of Nova Scotia - we've been off to a busy start for 2018: hosting education sessions about radon, partnering with the Halifax Hurricanes for family fun night, getting groundwork done for our programming, and tackling some important advocacy issues related to lung health in Nova Scotia.

We’re also very excited to have a strong team underway for the Scotiabank Bluenose Charity Challenge, which is happening the long weekend in May! We’re hoping to have a strong showing in this years race, and we would love to have you join our team! Please read below for more information on how to join us for this fun event!

As Helen Keller once said: “Alone we can do so little; Together we can do so much.” We are lucky to have such passionate supporters and we’re excited to see what more we can accomplish when we continue to work together!

Please stay in touch! If you aren’t already following us on social media, please click on the links below to stay up-to-date on all the work you are helping us to accomplish!

Halifax Hurricanes support Camp Treasure Chest!

March 15th was extra special for some of our Camp Treasure Chest families. The Halifax Hurricanes dedicated their March break family fun night to the Lung Association of Nova Scotia, and specifically, to support Camp Treasure Chest - a Summer camp for kids who have asthma.

Free tickets to the Hurricanes game were provided to our Camp Treasure Chest families. There were also bouncy castles, face painting and a sign making station, which created extra fun for the whole family!

The Halifax Hurricanes also offered a special discounted ticket rate to supporters of the Lung Association, with a portion of all ticket sales being donated back to support Camp Treasure Chest.

The Zeta Psi fraternity donated their time, selling 50/50 tickets, with $1200 going to the winner!

We want to thank everyone for all their support!  If you know a child with asthma who you think deserves to go to camp and you want more information, visit:
