RHA Begins “Special Event” Fundraising

RHA begins using “special event” fundraising (running races, etc.) to generate support for its mission. Special events raise $9,204 in 1976. In the ensuing years, special events such as Hustle Chicago and CowaLUNGa Charity Bike Ride raise in excess of $1.5 million per year to support local efforts to promote healthy lungs and clean air.
