Every 10 seconds someone has a potentially life-threatening asthma attack. Tragically the majority of these could be prevented, whilst others suffer with asthma so severe current treatments don't work. This has to change.

Asthma UK work to stop asthma attacks and, ultimately cure asthma by funding world leading research and scientists, campaigning for improved care and supporting people with asthma to give them better quality of life.

Asthma UK are entirely funded by voluntary donations.

  • In the UK, 5.4 million people are currently receiving treatment for asthma
  • Three people die every day because of asthma

In this world where many Illnesses are eradicated, Asthma is still a fatal condition much more research is needed to save lives.

Gary Spengler feels passionate about the cause, and said of the fundraising: "As many of you will already know I have been an Asthmatic all my life, so this charity is dear to my heart, as you will read on my JustGiving page people aren't aware of how debilitating it is, and how it affects people's lives."
