Coleman Graf has been a volunteer director for the BC Lung Association for more than 18 years, representing the Salmon Arm region.

“Our Golf Savings Book is the perfect gift for your favourite golfer,” he said. “For less than the cost of one round of golf, the book gives you access to hundreds of dollars of savings that you can use throughout the year.”

All book sale proceeds support vital lung disease research, patient advocacy, education and support programs.

“The fact is, most of us know someone with a breathing problem, and buying the BC Lung Association’s Golf Savings Book gives golfers a way to give back and support the one in five Canadians affected by lung disease doing what they love most,” Graf said.

For more than 100 years, the BC Lung Association has been the voice and leader on lung health issues in the province.

Founded to fight tuberculosis, the association today fights lung disease in all its forms, with special emphasis on tobacco and vaping product control, asthma, COPD, lung cancer, pulmonary fibrosis and air quality.
