Re-launched TeamCOPD.ca website profiles COPDers and supporters and showcases the Coast 2 Coast Challenge event
The Lung Association is making it easier for people affected by Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) to connect online. Our newly re-launched website, www.TeamCOPD.ca, gives COPD patients, family members, and supporters the opportunity to share their stories, photos, profiles, Twitter updates (tweets) and videos.
We invite everyone to visit the new site at www.teamcopd.ca. Check out the photos and videos, including a brand-new video on COPD by Mary Walsh, celebrated comedian well-known for her work on the CBC show This Hour has 22 Minutes and other projects.
TeamCOPD.ca also showcases the Coast 2 Coast Challenge for COPD, the Lung Association's virtual trek across Canada to build awareness of COPD. This annual event runs from November 1st to November 18, World COPD Day.
Throughout the Coast 2 Coast Challenge event, Canadians report how far they've exercised- be it walking, cycling, running, swimming, or skating. The Lung Association adds up everyone's reported distances and displays our collective progress on a map of Canada on the teamcopd.ca homepage. Our goal is to go coast to coast to coast, from Victoria to St. John's to Iqaluit, and back to Victoria- a round trip of over 14 000 km!
