This year marks the 11th anniversary of Breathe! Bash – and what a milestone year this will be. The Lung Health Foundation is evolving to better deliver on its mission of helping the 1 in 5 Canadians living with lung disease. We will be forging a new way forward and unveiling our new direction and focus at Breathe! Bash, where we will officially launch as the Lung Health Foundation.
We are excited to start this chapter in our history with you – our community of researchers, partners, donors, elected officials and patients. Together, we can realize the full potential of what’s possible in addressing the lung health challenges of today and the future.
To showcase the bold and fresh look of the Lung Health Foundation, we ask that you wear something (anything) teal.
We are excited to announce our new event venue – Steam Whistle Brewery.
Located in downtown Toronto’s historic Roundhouse, with its beautiful original brick, exposed beams, and 30 foot ceilings, this extraordinary space is the perfect setting for our Breathe! Bash.
We have just confirmed our entertainment – the Black n’ Blues band!
Acoustic duo, the Black n’ Blues band, features the raw talent of JJ Blue and JoJo Garrisi.
We are in for a treat, as Black n’ Blues plays all genres of music including soul, reggae, blues, and funk, jazz, rock, and country. This dynamic duo will take us on a journey, playing hit songs from the 1950’s to the present. So, wear your dancing shoes – you will need them!
The Evening’s Emcee:
Natasha Ramsahai, from CityNews is this year’s Emcee.
The Evening’s Keynote Speaker:
Professional freestyle skier, Jake Cohn!
Since birth, Jake has lived with severe asthma. As Jake had limited lung function and was in and out of the hospitals as a child, his doctors did not believe he could live a “normal life.” Despite the obstacles that stood in his way, Jake persevered and pursued his dream of becoming a professional freestyle skier. We look forward to hearing Jake’s inspirational story of trial and triumph, as he overcame adversity to live his dream.

Last year we raised $170,000 towards lung health research. Each dollar raised is going to helping Canadians breathe better. Thank you to all our sponsors and supporters for making Breathe! Bash 2019 a major success.
