Nova Scotia Lung Foundation hopes to make Stair Heroes fundraiser an annual event

The Nova Scotia Lung Association knows that in order to make your way up 18 flights of stairs, you need strong, healthy lungs.

That’s why Sunday saw more than 150 people sign up for the association’s fundraiser, known as Stair Heroes, with individuals raising their heart rates for a good cause.

“This is actually the first time a stair climb has been done in Nova Scotia, so we’re really proud of that,” said Robert MacDonald, the president and CEO of the Nova Scotia Lung Foundation.

The foundation tries to help people with lung diseases and advocates for policies and procedures on vaping and smoking regulations.
