Team Ali

We're fundraising to support millions affected by lung disease during the coronavirus crisis.

Our story:

Hi! We are Sophia (8) and Mahdi (6). Our mum is a pharmacist who works with people who have lung conditions. We know how important her job is and we want to walk 100km in September to raise money for people with lung disease. 

Thank you for visiting our team's Take Steps page. This September we're getting active to raise money to help people with lung conditions get the support they need. We're fundraising for the British Lung Foundation, the only charity that supports all 12 million people with a lung condition in the UK.

The BLF know just how difficult the current crisis has been for people with a lung condition. Their Helpline alone has been receiving up to 3x more calls than normal and they're working round the clock to make sure people get the support they need, helping to ease the strain on the NHS. They're publishing up to date advice and information every day but they need support...

Every £57 we raise through our Take Steps pays for a nurse to work on the Helpline for 1 hour, meaning that those in need can receive crucial medical advice and support when they need it most.

Support our challenge by donating or joining our Take Steps team today!

Thank you to our Sponsors
