My Story

Hi guys, Britt here! LUNG CANCER SUCKS. Those who are close to me would know why I'm doing this. Someone very close to me who is a non-smoker has been diagnosed with lung cancer. It was purely a mutation of cells. My shock and frustration has resulted in the need to do something about it. So here it goes! Let's run a half marathon, change the stigma and create awareness about lung cancer! I'm fundraising for the Lung Foundation Australia. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. You can help, by donating to my page or watching me cross the finish line! Follow my instagram account @ihavelungs to keep up with my journey! Thanks in advance xx

About my cause: Lung Foundation Australia

Anyone can get lung disease. It affects 1 in 4 Australians and is the second leading cause of death.

Lung Foundation Australia is the only charity in Australia providing support and a voice for people with lung disease, their families, carers, health professionals and the general community. 

We fund life-changing research and facilitate early detection by supporting best practice clinical management and delivering lung health programs. We work to empower those with lung disease to take the important steps they can to enjoy a better quality of life by understanding and managing their disease. 

Lung Foundation Australia works across all areas of lung disease, with a particular focus on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), lung cancer and rare lung diseases including Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH), bronchiectasis and rare lung disease in children.  

We offer a range of support and services to help people to manage their lung condition and improve their lung health and wellbeing. Your generous donations ensure we can continue to: 

- Drive community awareness about lung health

- Fund word class research

- Advocate for people with a lung condition

- Provide information and support for patients

- Facilitate best-practice training and education for health professionals.

Lung Foundation Australia relies on funding from individuals, families, businesses and industry organisations and are deeply appreciated of this generosity. To increase our support for research, patients and advocacy, it is critical we continue to build our capacity to raise further funds in the community. 

Fundraise by creating your own fundraising challenge. Fundraising can be a lot of fun and a great way to get the community together for a purpose. 


Thank you for your kind support.
