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.
