Breathe Deep Boston is a 5K walk to raise funds for critical lung cancer research and support. The course is friendly to strollers and wheelchairs. Free refreshments including coffee, hot chocolate, and snacks will be provided and LUNGevity and other awareness items will be available for donation. All are invited to write a personal message on our In Honor Wall where small photos may also be posted.
Awards will be given out to the top 3 individual fundraisers and top 3 fundraising teams.
In 2006, two long time lung cancer survivors, the late Rich Kaufman and the late Geri Norris, with the support of a small group of family, friends and volunteers also touched by lung cancer, started the first walk in Boston. Since then, this grassroots movement has successfully drawn thousands of participants and raised over $1,000,000 for lung cancer research, as well as support resources and advocacy for those affected by lung cancer. All walk proceeds have been for the benefit of LUNGevity Foundation, and we in the BREATHE DEEP BOSTON community are proud that Boston institutions, their physicians and scientists, are so well represented in the foundation’s history of investment in research projects across the country.
