Teeing off on lung disease

The 2012 Golf Privilege Membership Book is being sold for $35.

The B.C. Lung Association is hoping a Christmas deal for golf enthusiasts will help drum up support for British Columbians living with lung disease.

The 2012 Golf Privilege Membership Book – with discounts, deals and special offers at more than 350 western B.C. golf courses, and even a few in Washington State – is being sold for $35.

A tradition for nearly 25 years, the book’s proceeds fund lung health research, programs and services for the one in five B.C. residents with lung disease.

According to the lung association, chronic lung disease is the fastest-growing cause of hospitalization, disability and death in Canada.

Incidences of child asthma have reached epidemic levels, lung cancer takes more lives each year than any other cancer and tobacco use remains the number one preventable cause of death, officials say.

For more information or to purchase the golf savings book, visit www.golfandsave.ca or call 1-800-665-5864.
