Who do you ride for?

Asthma makes breathing difficult, lowers quality of life, and can become deadly within minutes.

 1 in 10 have asthma.

So either you have it, or your sister does, or your son or cousin or friend. And all of them deserve to breathe confidently.

This is why we ride:

I ride for Ben. Ever since he was 3, when Ben gets a cold it means a trip to the emergency department because of his asthma. Even when he isn’t sick, Ben’s night wheezing makes it hard to sleep and he is often tired at school. His dad and I worry about him having an attack while playing outside. Asthma Foundation WA is helping us improve his health for the better.

Natalie, Ben's mum

I hadn’t had an asthma attack in 20 years. But last year I went to New York. When staying with a friend who had pets, I woke up gasping for breath. I did not think to bring my puffer and started to panic. Pharmacies were open but wouldn’t sell me a puffer without a prescription. I very luckily got through, but it could have ended much worse. Now I always bring my puffer and take asthma seriously.

We ride for Angie. A debilitating asthma attack changed Angie’s life. Now, routine medicines don’t work and she needs constant care to continue breathing. She cannot get out of bed most days. With no cure for asthma, we fundraise and hope researchers will make a breakthrough to help people with severe asthma like her.

Steve, Angie's husband
