Hike volunteers needed
WOODLANDS resident Michelle Grosse (41) is volunteering and supporting her nine- year- old asthmatic son Marshall in the Freeway Bike Hike for Asthma this weekend.
Asthma Foundation WA (AFWA) is calling for more volunteers to help assembling race packs and staffing aid and water stations.
The family-friendly event on Sunday, March 22 raises funds for respiratory research and helps the foundation facilitate community programs.
Mrs Grosse said she was excited to be a part of the phenomenal team. “I can’t imagine not being involved with the foundation,” she said.
“On the day, I will be volunteering with my eldest daughter Taylor at the finish line, while my husband Ian rides with Marshall.”
Mrs Grosse said Marshall would like to find a cure so other people did not have to suffer like him.
“He hasn’t had an asthma attack in a while, so he is chuffed with himself that he can participate again this year,” she said.
“We are just happy to give back to an organisation that has given us so much and helped Marshall.”
Last year Mrs Grosse participated in the ride with her son.
“It was a big effort for him because he is severely asthmatic and to see him reach his goal was brilliant,” she said.
