May is Asthma Awareness Month!  Asthma affects more than 25 million people of all ages and races, yet public awareness of the common asthma triggers and effective asthma management strategies remain limited. 

The Jerome Alston Memorial Foundation’s (JAMF) mission is to increase public awareness of the asthma epidemic, with our annual Breathe Easy 5K Run/Walk for Asthma Awareness & Health Expo. This event started in 2013 in Virginia and has since expanded to South Georgia and Los Angeles. The race continues to expand across the U.S. with a debut in Dallas, Texas and Oakland, California in 2017. Our Dallas 5K will be the 1st annual and will be held at Bachman Lake Park in Dallas on Saturday, May 13, 2017. 

In past years, sponsor support and proceeds from the race have afforded JAMF the ability to provide health screenings to the community and donate funds to the American Lung Association and other Asthma support organizations in the cities where the races have been held. The Dallas 5K will support Park Cities Allergy & Asthma located right in Dallas. Supporting this practice will help dedicated asthma treatment Doctors focus on getting patients appropriately treated and have the best quality of life while living with asthma. We need your help to make a bigger impact on the asthma community in Dallas and bring a broader awareness to this disease in 2017.
