Asthma Walk

A few weeks ago I met with the Clean Air Coordinator for the American Lung Association for the Imperial Valley. I found out during our meeting that the Imperial Valley has the highest rate of hospitalization in the state of California for kids with asthma. Asthma doesn’t really hit home if you’ve never experienced it. But just imagine not being able to breathe very well and wanting to badly. When I heard about this issue here in the valley the words of Jesus came to mind “Love your neighbor as yourself”. We feel that loving our neighbor’s is to provide for them a better way of life . Medically as a church, we can’t do anything about the problem, but we can contribute to find a solution. So what we are doing is participating in the Asthma Walk organized by the American Lung Association in San Diego this coming Sunday Morning. There is a group from the church driving over to San Diego for the Asthma Walk. If you live in the Southern California Area and you want to join us or want to find a walk near you click HERE to learn more. If you want to donate click HERE. Our team name is “El Centro SDA Church”.
