Friends & Donors!
As you know, we held our Annual Asthma Walk, last Saturday, May 5 at Glazebrook Park, in Godfrey, IL.
Didn't we get a beautiful day?
At present, we raised close to $1,100 in actual checks received & pledges!
This is "short!" So, I am continuing to make contacts!
"L" is for Lungology!" --- will keep going, it's a whole Study to keep alive, preserved & promoted!
For our "L" is for Lungology TEAM, we were dedicated to the children with asthma, dealing with this chronic lung disease!
We were small in numbers . But, we walked with one thought in mind. And, that was for "the kids!"
We had a terrific day, lots of sunshine!
Registration, healthy snacks & plenty of water & iced tea!
Estimating, we circled our section 3 times!
Winding down, we met up with our Godfrey Mayor, Mike Mc Cormick & took PIX!
The Mayor secured our "Asthma Walk" reservation for next year at Glazebrook Park. Hooray!
And, the ALA provided a terrific lunch, fresh fruit, sandwiches & chicken & salad, too!
Plus, delicious cookies!
Wrapping up:
The goal is to hold our Annual Asthma Walk, on every 1st Saturday in May!
We know that, we can mark our calendar's for next year!

"M" will be: "M" is for Making a Difference: On a Mission!"
It's all for our ALA children attending the Summer Camp & Asthma Workshops" at SIU-E Campus, which will continue as an Annual Event, as long as it is successful!
Now, the ALA have started to get the word out about their Summer workshop!
More details on that, soon!
Thank you for your interest & support!
More to come!
"After all, if you cant't breathe! What else matters?"
Jaris, Honoree ALA Chairman
The date of the children's camp is Saturday, August 11!
