The Lung Association of Saskatchewan and SaskEnergy Invite You to Win a Prize – Change a Life!
Saskatoon, April 29, 2014 - The Lung Association of Saskatchewan, in conjunction with their corporate partner, SaskEnergy, invites your support by purchasing your chance to win with the 2014 Share The Air Raffle (Lottery License #LR13-0095). Just imagine what you would do with the grand prize of up to $121,750 in tax-free cash!
A chance to win up to $121,750 is reason enough to purchase your tickets. But remember that your support will also change the lives of people that are affected by lung disease. Imagine watching your child or grandchild struggling for breath during an asthma attack. The good news is that with medication and proper education, the disease can be very well controlled and have a minimal effect on quality of life. The Lung Association provides important education programs and materials to help children and adults manage their asthma. That is just one example of how you, as a supporter of the raffle, can change lives.
The second and third prizes are the winners' choice of a tour package voucher for $5,500 or $5,000 cash. Marlin Travel is ready to help you plan the vacation of your dreams! Win a SaskEnergy Network Member gift certificate (6 at $1000 each) for the purchase of natural gas equipment and/or services at any SaskEnergy Network Member location in Saskatchewan.

The number of people with lung disease is still on the rise – it claims the life of a Canadian every 13.5 minutes.
"One out of every three of our residents will be affected by lung disease during their lifetime," says The Lung Association of Saskatchewan's President and CEO, Brian Graham. "The Lung Association and SaskEnergy continue to work together on this fundraising initiative because improving lung health in Saskatchewan is an important goal shared by our organizations," he adds.
