Thumbs up

Funds raised from The Lung Ride go to help fund the Mobile Asthma Clinic, MAC van. The MAC van is used to diagnosis, treat and educate children with asthma in underserved areas. It will be setup at schools, churches, health fairs and community centers. All of the services provided by the MAC van are free.
