This week in Rotary
On February 4 at the Morning Meeting for All Del Sol Rotarians, Terry Huertaz of the American Lung Association was the Speaker. She discussed how important the Lung Association and its work are in this time of Covid-19.  She reminded us that the Covid-19 virus attacks the lungs and breathing problems often result. Terry said that the Lung Association, the oldest Not for Profit Association in New Mexico, has a Help Line where people can call in and talk to a Registered Nurse or Respiratory Therapist about Lung issues such as asthma.  
The Association is n the midst of a $25 Million fundraiser to help with its research on Lung Disease.
Locally, the Association is doing a modified Firemans Challenge called the "Fight  for Air Climb" on April 10, 2021.  RDS Admin Chair Kent Cravens is chair of the event and has issued a challenge to donors who donate $500.  When they do a team for the climb will be formed for the donor. There will also be a golf outing this year.  
Terry also reminded Rotarians that Lung Cancer is still the leading cause of cancer death in the USA,
