We enjoyed seeing everyone at our 18th Annual Hustle Up the Hancock on February 22, 2015. Four thousand people climbed 94 or 52 flights of stairs at John Hancock Center and helped us raise more than $1 million for Respiratory Health Association's research, education programs and advocacy efforts that benefit community lung health.

We are proud to be a partner in the new Clean Energy Initiative initiated by the Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Heising-Simons Family. This work will accelerate our work aimed at improving air quality, fighting the damaging impacts of climate change and building a strong energy economy.
We launched The Coal Truth campaign to raise awareness of how coal power plants impose steep costs on the public’s health and quality of life in Illinois. We want to alert lawmakers in Springfield and the public in Illinois about how coal punishes the most vulnerable Illinoisans – the very young, the very old, the poor and the sick.
