Sound below. Wind your way down to the beach and run for 2 miles along the

sound views will inspire you!
Awards will be given to the top individual and team fundraisers as well as to
timed runners. All participants receive a t-shirt. Stick around after the race,
there will be coloring for kids, music, speakers, and a DJ on the beach.
The course accommodates rugged strollers and pets.
Breathe Deep Seattle
was started to honor Sara Ratzenberger and others whose lives have been
affected by lung cancer. At age 31, Sara was diagnosed with stage IV lung
cancer. With a history of a healthy and active lifestyle, even Sara’s medical
team did not consider lung cancer a possibility. Only after intensive lung
surgery was her cancer finally discovered. Sadly, Sara passed away two and a
half years later. We want others to know that lung cancer has no boundaries,
but there is hope! In just 2 years, Breathe Deep Seattle has raised over
$110,000 for LUNGevity Foundation, the largest private funder of lung cancer
research. Through events like Breathe Deep Seattle, LUNGevity is able to
provide a community of hope for those affected by this disease. Like Seattle
resident Eva Borsi, an avid bike rider and mother of 3, who was diagnosed with
stage IV lung cancer at the age of 46. As a result of targeted therapeutic
treatments, Eva is now a passionate lung cancer advocate and ran the entire
Breathe Deep Seattle course! Please join us on Saturday, August 10, 2013, to
raise awareness for the number one cancer killer and to raise money for lung
cancer research. With your help, there is hope!
