Message from the President &
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

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
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
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
