The Youth Rally Committee creates a community for young people with rare medical conditions to bond over shared experiences, learn about symptom management, and find relief from the sense of alienation that accompanies these rare conditions. Kids aged 11–17 with bowel and bladder disorders such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and cancers of the bowel or bladder come together once a year for a weeklong rally on a college campus. During their stay, they take part in outdoor games and off-campus trips to local museums, and learn how to manage their conditions with activities overseen by nurses and counselors who also have similar conditions. Counselor skits and a camp dances relieve stress in the evenings, while off-campus events promote medical self-management in a public setting.

Coit South Jersey’s certified technicians use a HEPA-Aire vacuum and Aire-Sweep compressor system to rid a home’s lungs of air pollutants and debris. Flying filth such as dust, pollen, and animal dander get sucked from dryer vents or air ducts into a contained filtration system capable of capturing motes as small as 1/300th the diameter of a human hair and obstructions as large as an enemy spy. The longer an air ducts stay gunky, the higher the likelihood that mold spores, bacteria, and mildew will colonize ducts and send expeditions out into the rest of the home, causing detrimental effects to the respiratory health of inhabitants. In addition to granting health benefits, a clean air-duct system or dryer vent runs more efficiently, freeing up utility funds for fourth-month showers during winter.
