Announcement

THANK YOU for your donation to American Lung Association in honor of Gin Goon
The fundraising campaign was concluded in early June. We have received donations totalling over $5,400 plus another $500 from corporation matching donation. The donation was presented to the American Lung Association on June 21 at the regional office in Mid-town.
Gin Goon was the late founder of CMCNY. He was a mountaineering and hiking expert. His patience and selfless personality had motivated many of us to become outdoor enthusiasts. He had lived a healthy life and had no bad habits of smoking or drinking. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2003 shortly after cancer was diagnosed in his lungs. Since then, in every year CMCNY organizes the 26 miles Gin's Hike to fundraise for American Lung Association in honor of him. The American Lung Association is very appreciative on our effort in the fundraising and promoting respiratory health year after year. Thank you again for your continuing support and generous donations.
