The Lung Association of Saskatchewan and SaskEnergy are working together on this fundraising initiative because improving lung health in Saskatchewan is a goal shared by our organizations, says the Lung Association's President and CEO, Brian Graham. One out of every three of our residents will be affected by lung disease during their lifetime, he adds.
We are pleased to provide $6,000 in prizing that can be used to help winners make their homes more energy efficient and comfortable.
