Breathe Better September is the Foundation's annual campaign to raise funds and awareness to support New Zealanders with respiratory disease.

Every Kiwi knows someone with a breathing condition.

Respiratory conditions like asthma, COPD and sleep apnoea affect 700,000 New Zealanders. That’s 1 in 7 of us. It’s the third most common cause of death and costs us $7 billion each year.

The Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ wants to see those figures change. We educate, advocate, support and research to improve the lives of Kiwis with respiratory conditions. Find out more about our work here!

Donate this September and be in to WIN!

This year Mercury have kindly donated us 40 Samsung AX90T Air Purifiers to give away through-out September. Each week we will be giving away 10 Air Purifiers to our donors. To enter, simply donate $10 or more towards Breathe Better September and you're in the draw to win... it's that easy!

Laps for Lungs

A 48hr campaign for respiratory awareness.

Foundation supporter Nick Ashill has completed his biggest challenge yet, 48 hours for respiratory awareness.

At 9AM on September 10th, amongst a loyal crew of sponsors and supporters, Nick completed his 48 hour challenge with plenty of gas left in the tank! The funds raised from this event help the Asthma and Respiratory Foundation support over 700,000 Kiwis living with respiratory disease.
