Welcome to our family

“Everybody Has A Right2Breathe™” – Chuck Morrison

How We Got Started

Right2Breathe® was established in 2014 to build from momentum started by Drive4COPD. Since our creation, we have expanded our program to include multiple patient and caregiver-centric Lung Health initiatives. 

Our Founders

Based in Flemington, NJ, Right2Breathe® was co-founded by Joe Morrison and Tim Charlet; two second-generation drag racers who have personal experience as caregivers for family members with a respiratory disease.

Our First Screening Event

We completed our first Right2Breathe Project COPD Education, Screening, and Awareness event in Bakersfield, California during the California Hot Rod Reunion, screening more than 300 people and engaging with thousands more.

Over 4,000 Screened Since 2014

After Bakersfield, we expanded our Right2Breathe Project to NHRA National Events in Charlotte, NC, Maple Grove, PA, and Epping, NH. We have partnered with hospitals, schools, businesses and even a local minor league baseball team. Including local events, we’ve screened over 4,000 for lung function.
