RED BANK: A GRANT TO BREATHE EASIER

Press release from Boys & Girls Clubs of Monmouth County

Asthma is one of the most common, recurring childhood illnesses; nearly 300,000 children in New Jersey have been diagnosed with asthma. Because asthma attacks can be prevented and managed, The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey believes it can make a positive impact, by improving the quality of life for asthma sufferers and their families and increasing awareness of the disease and its management,  through the BEAM (Breathe Easier with Asthma Management) Program.

Recently, The Boys & Girls Clubs of Monmouth County received support in the amount of $6,650 from the Foundation, in partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs in New Jersey. The grant will fund the second year of the BEAM program at the Red Bank and Asbury Park units.

In total, The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey is providing $600,000 in funding to Boys & Girls Clubs in New Jersey to continue the important work of raising awareness about asthma, by educating Boys & Girls Club members and their parents or caregivers about asthma and how best to manage it.  Across the Garden State, BEAM will benefit 2,500 children ages 5-18 years from 16 Boys & Girls Clubs in 12 New Jersey counties.

“This grant is enabling the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monmouth County to continue our important work in nurturing healthy lifestyles,” said Douglas Eagles, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monmouth County.

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
