In the evening we have been invited by Auckland City Mission to speak to and answer any questions to some of their diners during dinner service.

We will also be speaking at various schools as part of our dress up day in May promotion and we have several "corporates" taking part in "casual Friday's" in May where they get to dress up or dress down for a donation to Asthma Auckland.

We would like to invite Auckland school students to join in our Breathe Easy programme to recognise World Asthma Day, Tuesday 2nd May 2017, by dressing up in yellow and/or blue on any day in May or host a mufti day, bring a gold coin to school and learn more about Asthma. 

 

In appreciation we would like to offer your school a complimentary asthma education session for staff, parents and students.

Did you know that one in four Kiwi kids suffer from asthma?

Did you know that one person dies every week from asthma in NZ?

If one of your friends or students had an asthma episode at school, would you know what to do?

We would love to come to your school to answer these questions and many more, and show our appreciation of your fundraising efforts with your Dress up day in May for World Asthma Day 2017. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require further information... or to find out more click here
