Stay Connected and Walk With Us!
Share your Hope Breathes Here Clarke Walk stories, progress, images and videos with us as we work together to raise awareness, funds and hope through a Canada-wide virtual walk event during the month of September.
Hope Breathes Here is Virtual!
Every September, Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation marks this global awareness month with a series of walks, webinars, fundraising and awareness events. Approximately 30,000 Canadians live with this disease and several thousand die each year.
Pulmonary fibrosis is progressive lung disease that makes it difficult to breathe and do daily tasks. This disease makes a huge impact on people of all ages and caregivers across Canada.
While there is no cure, the Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (CPFF) and our community are working together to support people living with pulmonary fibrosis and to find a cure. Every September, Hope Breathes Here events raise awareness, funds and hope through Canada-wide virtual events that are accessible, informative and fun.
Four weeks for pulmonary fibrosis. Let’s raise awareness, hope and funds.
