Our Battle To Breathe Team works behind the scenes to make each race possible.
Apply now to become a member! President Saloni Sahni Last fall, she decided to revive the amazing Battle to Breathe! As an asthma victim, Saloni felt that individuals without the disease had a hard time empathizing with seemingly small struggles such as not being able to keep up with a running group, and constantly having to carry inhalers. As a result of asthma, she couldn't be part of many group hangouts in the past because of her inability to be able to keep her stamina. Therefore, she revived this organization to build a hopefully asthma-free future!
Vice President Claire Yu Claire is so excited to be a part of Battle To Breathe! As a person who struggles with asthma, it is her belief that more people should be informed. One in every twelve people have asthma, and this number only increases year by year. By raising money for the American Lung Association, she hopes to better the lives of those suffering from this illness. Claire hopes to see you at our annual 5k - you'll be running for a great cause.
