Breathe Deep Newark is a 1.5 mile or 3 mile untimed walk/fun run. Newark and surrounding communities will walk along the OSU/COTC campus and rally at the Rotary Park Pavilion to raise awareness and funds to end lung cancer. Refreshments, an Honor Wall, music, raffles, and a silent auction will keep you busy as well as a play area for the children. Breathe Deep Newark provides a wonderful opportunity for individuals impacted by lung cancer to be with others and to feel the power of a community coming together to remember lives lost and to support those fighting the horrible disease. Celebrate this
Mothers' Day with a special walk WITH, FOR, or in MEMORY of your loved one.
The path and walk area are stroller and wheelchair friendly.
With the help of the
LUNGevity Foundation and her family, Beverly Mellars-Craney created Breathe
Deep Newark, a 5K walk and rally in memory of Jean Mellars, to raise awareness
and funds for Lung Cancer research. Beverly’s mother, Jean, lost her
battle with Lung Cancer within just 6 weeks of diagnosis. Beverly, along
with her father and six sisters, want others to know that lung cancer has
no boundaries. The statistics are devastating and it is not just a smoker’s
disease. Lung cancer impacts 1 in 14 Americans and kills more people than
colorectal, breast, pancreatic, and prostate cancers combined. But there is
hope! Because of fundraising events like Breathe Deep Newark LUNGevity is
funding the most promising research into the early detection and targeted
therapies for lung cancer – but we need your help! Please join us as we come
together once again to raise awareness and hope in Jeans'
memory and for many others who have been affected by Lung Cancer.
We want to make sure that the next person and the next generation are diagnosed
early and accurately. We WILL make a difference!
