Why I am supporting Lung Foundation Australia

My Story

I am taking part in The Corporate Cycle Challenge 2018 to raise much needed funds for Lung Foundation Australia. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Lung Foundation Australia create the world we want to see.

About my team: Schneider Electric

The team at Schneider Electric is supporting this event to promote research into lung health. Our hope is that by raising awareness to the condition we can encourage everyone to be a little bit more active. We also hope that with a little bit of support, research will find new ways to help those affected to breathe a little easier. #Life is On To find out more please read below and if you wish to make a donation or share the page please do.

About The Corporate Cycle Challenge 2018

Every day, on average, we take more than 22,000 breaths. For some people, just one breath is a challenge.

Lung disease does not discriminate. It affects, men, women, children, smokers, ex-smokers and never-smokers.


• There are over 30 types of lung disease 

• 1 in 4 Australians has a lung disease

• 1 in 7 deaths is a result of lung disease 

Despite these shocking statistics, research into lung disease is significantly under-funded relative to other disease areas. 

Lung Foundation Australia is addressing this gap but we need your help.   All funds raised from the Lung Foundation Corporate Cycle Challenge will go directly towards lung disease research.

You can help by supporting those willing to put themselves on the line in our Cycle Challenge by clicking on the "Give Now" button. 

                                            Together let’s blow lung disease away! 

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.
