Man walking from Lethbridge to Edmonton to raise money for Lung Association

LETHBRIDGE, AB – One man began his 500 km journey Wednesday from Lethbridge to Edmonton in support of his father and others living with lung disease.

Edmonton’s Chris Sadleir raised $33,000 last year during his first Walk to Breathe from Calgary to Edmonton.

He’s upping the stakes this year with a much longer walk and a $50,000 which will be given to the Lung Association of Alberta and Northwest Territories.

Sadleir’s 2021 Walk to Breathe is underway now and will end in Edmonton on July 23rd, the day that also marks the five-year milestone of his own father’s lifesaving double-lung transplant.
