Three people a day die from asthma. Asthma UK is the
charity dedicated to changing this. We fund research and offer support because
90% of asthma deaths are preventable.
One of the vital services Asthma UK provides is
the Adviceline which is staffed by asthma nurse specialists. They provide confidential
advice and support to people with asthma and those who care for them.
When I spoke to the Asthma UK nurses they were so knowledgeable and so
sympathetic. They gave me so much good and needed advice they were amazing. - Jacqui, Dorset
Asthma UK is the
largest voluntary funder of asthma research in the UK, investing over £50
million to date to find new treatments and ultimately a cure for asthma. For some people with asthma even
climbing the stairs can feel like a mountain, never mind going outside their
home, and with your help Asthma UK are working to change this.
So pull on your walking boots and register today to
help people with asthma. Once you have signed up, our experienced events team
is on hand to help you reach your fundraising goals and support you on this
I wanted do something in memory of my sister who sadly passed away from
an asthma attack and to help other people with asthma in the future. Taking
part in an Asthma UK walking challenge gave me something to focus on and I felt
a real sense of achievement at the end, it was an experience I would recommend
