Tulip campaign delivers boost for lungs

Employees throughout Brandon will be sporting big smiles this week as they are treated to a “breath of spring.”

With the help of dedicated volunteers, the Manitoba Lung Association is delivering brightly coloured bunches of tulips that were ordered through the Breath of Spring Tulip Campaign to workplaces around the city.

The cheer doesn’t stop there, as the blooms will be available to the public at local businesses around Brandon today through Saturday.

This marks the 15th year for the Breath of Spring Tulip Campaign, a major fundraiser for the Manitoba Lung Association.

“I love selling the tulips,” said Anne Walker of Brandon, who has been a tulip volunteer for more than a decade. “The flowers really attract a lot of attention, and after the wicked winter we have had, are very uplifting for people.”

The tulips sell for $6 per bunch of five or two bunches for $10. All money raised stays in Manitoba to help support lung health throughout the province.”
