Honour and celebrate your loved ones
If you’ve recently lost a loved one to asthma, please accept our heartfelt sympathy. We can’t know the grief you are feeling but feel honoured that you would like to support us at this incredibly sad time.
Choosing to fundraise or donate in memory of your loved one, is a very special way to honour their life. The funds you raise, and the donations you give will support asthma research and education. Funding vital services like our 1800 ASTHMA information line. Which aims to help people manage their asthma better. Sadly, more than 400 people die from asthma attacks most years. We want a future where no lives are lost to asthma.
At Asthma Australia, we have had people hold memorial sports matches, Golf days, Trivia nights, Bicycle and Motorbike rides, hold Fetes and fun days, Car or Ute shows. We’ve had people sell candles, hold sausage sizzles. Host dress in purple day, or pyjama day. Others have taken on a physical challenge like walking 5kms a day for a month, or joined an organised race, doing an ocean swim or taking part in a running race in memory of their loved one.
Some fundraisers like to make it a yearly event. These rituals and legacies help ensure their loved one’s memory lives on and continues to make a meaningful difference for others.
Asthma Australia is here to help you celebrate your loved one's memory in whatever way you choose.

SPOTLIGHT ON A FUNDRAISER: MATTY34 LEGACY
We raise funds for Asthma Australia & awareness of DonateLife Organ Eye & Tissue Donation. Matty's 2 Legacies.In honour of Matty, Julie and her family started holding memorial baseball matches for Matty – one in metro Melbourne and the other in country Victoria.
“There are approximately 80-100 players from five clubs involved in the Bendigo event now, and we have guest speakers come along on the day. I design special Matty34 jerseys and hats.”
Sadly, like Matthew, about 400 people die from asthma every year. Asthma Australia relies on community fundraisers to help the 2.7 million Australians living with asthma to live freely.
