Ark Sponsors the Race Across America for Asthma UK

3rd June 2014

In the UK somebody is hospitalised by Asthma every eight minutes. Three of these incidents will result in death.

The thing with statistics is they’re easily ignored when they don’t directly affect you, it’s a whole different ball game when they do.

On the 17th October 2009, our Chairman Jeff Thomas lost his beautiful daughter to asthma. Although Antonia had experienced mild asthma in the past, she’d never had an attack before. Despite the paramedics best efforts to resuscitate her, she was pronounced dead upon arrival at hospital.

Antonia was just ten years old.

Part of our culture at Ark includes the support of many worthy causes but it’s safe to say, this one in particular is close to our heart.

This month, we’re proud and delighted to be sponsoring The London Pride Spinhalers team, who are about to undertake The Race Across America (RAAM) and we’d love your support.
