Cow Fundraising Support

As a CowaLUNGa rider, you have an important impact on air quality and people living with asthma, COPD, lung cancer, and other lung diseases. All fundraising proceeds benefit RHA’s mission to prevent lung disease, promote clean air, and help people live better through education, research, and policy change.

Because Cow is a charity ride, below you’ll find a variety of resources to make fundraising as easy and FUN as possible.
