There are currently very few non-profit organizations dedicated to the COPD cause. 5K4MJ is the first 5K event that benefits the COPD Foundation, and individuals are asked to help 5K4MJ fight for the freedom to breathe by participating as a walker, runner or volunteer. Also, organizations are encouraged to sponsor the event through monetary or in-kind gifts, or by simply donating money. Registration for the event is now open and interested participants are encouraged to register online atwww.enter2run.com. For additional information on sponsorship opportunities, registration, and volunteer initiatives, please visit www.5k4mj.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Symptoms of COPD include constant coughing (aka “smoker’s cough”), shortness of breath while doing activities individuals used to be able to do, not being able to take a deep breath, and wheezing, among others.
