Music stars including Clint Black, Gretchen Wilson and Jewel took the stage for two days of free live performances at the Chicago Country Music Festival. Visitors also enjoyed fun activities including country line dancing lessons, face painting, mural coloring and interactive games at the kids' corral.
Campaign staff and volunteers provided important COPD information to more than 5,500 people at the festival. With the help of the Respiratory Health Association of Metropolitan Chicago over 330 people were able to take advantage of free spirometry testing during the two day period! And many more were able to talk with lung health experts and get their questions answered.
