Breathe Deep Central Illinois, a 5K run/2-mile walk, is a grassroots
event that was started in 2009 by a Central Illinois family who lost a
loved one to lung cancer. The event, held at Tipton Park North, has
continued to grow and raise funds to end lung cancer. In addition to the
5K run and 2-mile walk, the event offers live entertainment, food,
kids' activities including face painting and a bounce house, silent
auction, and a raffle, making a day the entire family can enjoy! Our
motto is "until there is an end to lung cancer...we won't stop."
An honor wall will be set up to display photos of your loved ones along
with notes of encouragement and/or remembrance. You can bring something
already prepared or use our supplies to create your own on site. At the
end of the event you may leave your photos for us to make a scrapbook or
take them home with you. If you are unable to make our event but want
to send something for us to hang on our honor wall, please contact email@example.com.
Honor a lost loved one or celebrate a survivor
