Raising awareness can make a huge difference in donations towards much needed research into pulmonary fibrosis and lung infection.

Follow us on Twitter or Facebook and retweet or share our posts giving detail about these respiratory conditions, publicising new events or showing our research developments. If you haven’t done so already, please sign up to this website so that you can receive updates.

September is #Breathtember – global pulmonary fibrosis awareness month.

Join our Get Out of Breath #Breathtember campaign each year and raise awareness at the same time through social media.

To help raise awareness, we ask that supporters tweet different challenges during September including the term ‘#Breathtember’ and ask their followers to retweet and share this information as widely as possible.

Think outside the box for your challenges -

 Getting out of breath for you could mean:

  • Cycling around your local park
  • Doing a virtual 5K/10K run or walk
  • Singing until you are out of breath
  • Walking over the wondrous London bridges
  • Blowing bubbles … or windmills!
  • Or just simply walking up the stairs!

#Breathtember

The important thing is that you tweet your challenge including the hashtag ‘#Breathtember’ to raise awareness of pulmonary fibrosis.  Add a photo if you like.  Each September, we want as many people as possible to get to know what Pulmonary Fibrosis really means.
