Join us and Blow the Whistle on Asthma. Take a walk to support the over 20.3 million Americans who suffer from Asthma; over 592,000 live in Florida.  In Leon County alone, an estimated 9,705 adults and 2,763 children have been diagnosed with asthma.  Together we can make a difference. Your participation in the 2005 Asthma Walk will support asthma education, services and research in our 15-county Big Bend region.  Visit the American Lung Association National web site for information on lung health resources, including programs and events in your area or call 1-800-LUNG-USA.
Asthma Walk is nationally sponsored by The Respiratory Institute
established by GlaxoSmithKline and Toyota Prius.
