Breathe Deep NEPA

Saturday, June 7, 2014

Kirby Park, Market Street
Kingston, PA 18704



Our Story

This event honors Allan Makowski, an artist, poet, outdoorsman, and modern Renaissance man. He was a very active member of the community, a loving, caring family man, and a loyal friend. Allan lost his courageous battle with stage IV lung cancer in June 2009. His family and friends have a strong commitment to funding early diagnosis and treatment research, and have planned this 5K walk in the hope that it will become a growing annual event.

Northeastern Pennsylvania is an area with an above-average rate of lung cancer. So many lives are touched by this disease - those of the patient, the survivors, families, and friends. We hope to bring lung cancer awareness to the forefront in the northeastern Pennsylvania area.

Event Details

Breathe Deep NEPA is a 5K Walk and Fun Run. The route is stroller, wheelchair, bicycle and pet friendly. Be sure to clean up after your pets! We will have an honor wall that participants can sign in honor of who they are walking/running for—be sure to bring pictures to add to the wall as well! Prizes will be given out to the Top Individual Fundraiser, Team Captain of Largest Team and Top Fundraising Team.  We are excited to announce that Charlie Hayes "The Commander" presents Mike Octane as our DJ for this year!  Joan Murphy will be providing us with a wonderful warm up to get ready for the walk and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders mascot will be making an appearance!  Cheer Inspiration will also be performing during our event day program.
