Fundraise for Asthma Australia

Asthma Australia relies on community fundraisers to help the 2.7 million Australians living with asthma to live freely. 

You can make a big difference to people with asthma. Set up your own fundraiser, celebration, fundraise at work or school, or just get fit and have fun! Your fundraising will support ground-breaking research, provide evidence-based services and programs and deliver vital asthma education and training.

How funds raised make a difference

Despite the amazing progress with preventers and relievers, there’s still no cure for asthma.  But every day, our researchers are getting closer to finding a cure. The money you raise today will fund vital research and education to help halve the number of avoidable hospitalisations from asthma by 2030. Thank you!

Meet a Fundraiser

When Heath Wilson lost his mate Lenny Bingham to asthma, he wanted to raise awareness and much-needed funds for asthma education and research. 

Heath was in his 20s when his mate and tennis coach Lenny died from an asthma attack.

“I knew he had asthma, but I didn’t realise it could kill you.”

Lenny was a tennis coach and would run an event for Heath and his mates called Coach's Day – a day of ten pin bowling, golf, and tennis. When Lenny passed away, Heath continued these Coach's Day, (and more recently Golf Days and dinners) to raise funds in honour of Lenny.

Raising funds for Asthma Australia has been eye-opening for Heath. “It has been really interesting; a lot of people would come support the dinners and the golf days and it would turn out that they or their kids have asthma, but I never knew that.” This is probably the reality for many people, with 1 in 9 Australians living with asthma every day.
