The only charitable stair climb event east of Montreal


Chances are you know someone who has been affected by lung disease. In fact, 1 in 5 Canadians are living with lung disease.

That is why we will “Step Up” to help raise awareness and critical funds for programs and services provided by LungNSPEI.

For over 100 years, our supporters have been leading the way to improve lung health. In order to make our communities healthier places to live and breathe, we need to work together on our mission: advocacy, research, patient services and education.

Together, we have been supporting patients with COPD, lung cancer, sleep apnea, children with asthma, and those awaiting lung transplant surgery. We have taken a leadership role in advocacy on lung health issues. We’re at the forefront of prevention; providing awareness and programming for key lung health issues like radon, youth vaping and smoking cessation.

Unfortunately, we continue to have some of the highest rates of lung health disease across the country. With your help, we’re changing that.


Together, we can make prevention and improved lung health a priority today.


Let’s breathe better together!
