Being physically active offers huge health benefits, but sometimes we find it hard to fit enough movement into our daily lives. This is why ELF has launched Take the Active Option (TTAO) as a part of the Healthy Lung for Life (HLfL) campaign. By taking part in TTAO in your workplace, you can encourage your team to sign up and make time to find what activity works for them.
This could be choosing to walk or cycle to work, heading out for a lunchtime walk as a group, or running 10k at the weekend. The extra movement can have a positive impact on everyone’s health and is also a fun way of getting to know your employees.
This is a brilliant time to engage your employees and invite them to work towards a common goal. Here is a summary of the aims of our campaign:
Together we can help bring Take the Active Option to life in your workplace and answer any questions you have along the way.
We have bespoke platform where everyone can record their activity and any donations. This way you can see how you are all doing and set your own fundraising targets.
Someone from our team will be your point of contact. They will help you get started, offer advice and can help if you have any issues.
Our team will also provide you with our ‘Healthy Lungs for Life’ materials to use and share throughout your teams.

Everyone should have access to information about lung health to understand why it is important to prevent lung disease.
There are many factors that can have an effect on lung health and disease. We should all try to understand more about these factors and what actions we can take to keep our lungs healthy.
We all have lungs, and we all need to breathe, but still lung health and lung disease is often under-recognised. The European Respiratory Society (ERS) and European Lung Foundation (ELF) wanted to develop a positive campaign for people to think about their lungs and keeping lungs healthy. We are very excited to bring Take the Active Option to businesses and organisations to join our mission towards better lung health.
As a part of our service to you, the ELF team will provide you with our ‘Healthy Lungs for Life’ digital materials which you can use within your workplace to promote good lung health. This will include information on stopping smoking, air pollution, vaccination, climate change and physical activity (available in many languages.)
Respiratory diseases account for 1-in-8 deaths in Europe.
ELF brings patients and the public together with healthcare professionals to improve lung health and advance diagnosis, treatment and care. Our work benefits patients with lung conditions across Europe and the world and ensures lung health is kept in the public eye.
With your help, we can do more. Please give what you can today.Donate to ELF today
