Team Asthma are Canadians living with asthma and/or are supporting asthma education and research by raising money through sport and other physical activities. We proudly wear the Team Asthma logo and show that asthma can't stop us from reaching our goals!

Not participating in the registered runs but want to raise money for Team Asthma?
If your city does not have a charity challenge running/walking event, or if you are interested in raising money through your other talents and adventures (eg. mountain biking, kayaking, juggling, singing, swimming, (blank)-a-thon, etc), please contact us!

We would be happy to have you on our team, and we can help you set up a personal fundraising page to reach your goals.
