The first Tuesday of May marks World Asthma Day every year.
Tuesday, May 1st was international World Asthma Day.
As part of this year’s campaign we released three videos on how to recognise and deal with an asthma attack. The videos include step by step guidelines on what to do in the event of an attack and clear description of attack symptoms. Some of them may surprise you!
This year a survey was carried out to understand what people know about dealing with an asthma attack. The results were quite worrying!
You can read the results for yourself below.
Our main event took place in Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre on May 1st from 10am to 4pm.
Our Asthma specialist nurses provided free consultations to all, and there were games and facepainting.
Dublin’s 98 Thunder Team along with Spin 103.8’s Spinis were also around Grafton Street on the day, helping our volunteers fundraise.
To mark World Asthma Day, Boots have generously given us a €150 Boots voucher to give away! To be in with a chance of winning, send us your very best bubble photo!
