Why Charity Partners?
Respiratory Health Association (RHA) hosts the Hike for Lung Health and invites other lung health organizations to be Charity Partners. This collaboration means more of your fundraising dollars directly support important education, research, and policy change efforts.
How Do I Choose a Lung Health Organization to Support?
During registration, you can select RHA or one of the Charity Partners as your preferred lung health organization to benefit from your fundraising dollars. Donations you solicit for Hike for Lung Health will go to the designated organization and be used for programs serving individuals with asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, and other lung diseases.

Gifts to Charity Partners
A small portion of each gift to Hike for Lung Health is shared with Respiratory Health Association to support its work. There is not a “split” of the event’s proceeds – Charity Partners receive the proceeds from participants who designated their organization for support.
