The 2012 COPD Lungevity Tour, with its ambassadors Bruce Eyre and Brenda Cunningham, rode into Stratford Tuesday.

The cross-Ontario tour is being held to raise awareness about chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and the importance of early diagnosis.

Both Eyre and Cunningham are in their 70s and live with the disease. The pair attended a luncheon in the city before hitting the road for Hamilton.

The tour, which began Aug. 16, wraps up Sept. 14.

COPD affects more than 780,000 people in Ontario, and it’s estimated an equal number of remain undiagnosed. Current and former smokers over the age of 40 are recommended to get tested for the disease.
