The Fund to Cure Asthma Golf & Tennis Tournament - Moved to 2021

The Breath of Life New York Golf & Tennis Tournament



The Fund to Cure Asthma (FTCA) was founded by Nancy & James Berry Hill and Marjorie & Stephen Raphael in 1994 to secure resources for basic and clinical research related to understanding, treating and conquering asthma. The annual Golf Tournament in New York has supported FTCA at National Jewish Health, the leading respiratory hospital in the nation.

We are looking forward to your participation in the 2021 tournament.

Why Asthma

  • 25 million Americans have asthma
  • 12 million of those have uncontrolled asthma
  • 2.5 million have severe asthma that greatly affects their day-to-day lives
  • 10 Americans succumb to this chronic lung disease every day.
Our goal is to reduce that to zero deaths.

Your gift and/or participation will help us pursue this noble ambition.
