Race History
2014 marks the 13th Annual Breeze Against Wheeze 5K. The race was conceived in 2001 by a Brown University Medical student as a means to help finance Hasbro Children's Hospital's Asthma Camp. Asthma is the number one chronic condition in children, and the leading cause of hospitalization in children nationwide. Here in Rhode Island, the asthma rates are especially high and too many children with asthma do not have the education and support necessary to alleviate their condition. Each year the race raises 25% of the camp's total costs.
