​Take the Asthma Rap Challenge for a chance to win a studio recording session


 

GPs in Southwark are encouraging young people to help share essential messages about safely managing asthma – by taking part in the Asthma Rap Challenge.

Part of Healthy London Partnership’s #AskAboutAsthma campaign, the Asthma Rap Challenge asks children and young people to record a rap track that raises awareness of asthma, its risks and the simple things people can do to manage their condition.

The prize for the winning entry is a free professional studio recording session.
 
The competition is being run in partnership with London-based charity, Key Changes, which provides wellbeing and recovery services to young people through music.
 
Young artists from Key Changes have recorded their own track to spread important messages about asthma, and they are challenging other aspiring rappers to do the same.
 
The competition is open to everyone in Southwark aged 30 and under. To enter, just download the backing track and start recording your vocals.
 
Once you’re happy with your lyrics, make a video of yourself rapping to the track, upload it to your favourite social media channel with #AsthmaRapChallenge in the description, and submit your entry using the online form.
 
If you need inspiration, you can learn more about asthma at NHS Go.
 
The competition is open until 30 October 2018.
 

The #AskAboutAsthma campaign runs from 3-16 September and aims to encourage all children and young people with asthma to take three simple steps:
  • ASK: Do I have an asthma management plan? This helps identify the right colour inhaler and dosage, and when to seek emergency help.
  • ASK: Can I use my inhaler properly?
  • ASK: Have I had my annual asthma review?
