Story Land, the Granite State’s iconic amusement park, is partnering with Breathe New Hampshire and the New Hampshire Asthma Collaborative to shine a spotlight on asthma for two days, Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2, at the park.
In New Hampshire, one in nine residents has asthma, and the rate of adult asthma is one of the highest in the U.S. Asthma Awareness Days will feature education and resources on this chronic but manageable illness. Special accommodations will be made throughout the park from limited landscaping activity to making it completely smoke free.
