(Auburn, NH) – The Second Wind Foundation for Pulmonary Fibrosis has once again teamed up with the Manchester Monarchs for a hockey night fundraiser.

The Second Wind Foundation is selling tickets to the Monarchs annual “Pink In The Rink” game on February 7th , against the Providence Bruins. Tickets can be purchased for $20 dollars with $8.00 from each ticket going directly to the Second Wind Foundation for Pulmonary Fibrosis.

The “Pink in the Rink” night is a very special night for the Manchester Monarchs and Catholic Medical Center, as a portion of each ticket sold will be given directly to CMC. Last year the Monarchs and CMC raised over $10,000 in ticket sales and raffles. If you get your tickets from the Second Wind Foundation you will be able to support two great causes.

Pulmonary Fibrosis is a rare lung disease that creates scar tissue inside the lungs, making it harder and harder to breathe.   Pulmonary Fibrosis currently effects more than 500,000 people in the US.

The annual fundraiser brings in much needed donations that are used to fund ongoing research, like the “Pirfenidone” drug trials. The donations also go to our new “Breathe Easy” program that provides monetary support for families who are suffering with Pulmonary Fibrosis. The Second Wind Foundation provides qualifying families with gas cards to ease the cost of multiple visits to pulmonary specialists.

This year the Second Wind Foundation donated $5,000 to the Massachusetts General Hospital for their ground-breaking research on Pulmonary Fibrosis.

“Our annual hockey night fundraiser is one of my favorite events,” said Ron Geoffroy, President of the Second Wind Foundation for Pulmonary Fibrosis. “This is a great opportunity for families to enjoy professional level hockey while supporting two great causes.”

The Second Wind Foundation For Pulmonary Fibrosis 

Ron and MaryLou Geoffroy started The Second Wind Foundation for Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2010 after MaryLou was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis. They struggled to find information and support for people with PF. Ron and MaryLou started the foundation because they wanted to help raise awareness and money to support continued research for this unknown disease. The Second Wind Foundation for Pulmonary Fibrosis continues to educate the public about this rare but deadly disease, raise money for research and to help families suffering with PF. 

Ron Geoffroy continues to lead the Second Wind Foundation in loving memory of his late wife.
