Breathe Deep Kankakee

Saturday, May 10, 2014

New location!! Under 15-minute drive from past events!

Limestone Park
5813 West 1000 N. Road
Kankakee, IL 60901


Our Story

Breathe Deep Kankakee was started in 2009 by Tammy Johnson in support of her mother, Wanda, after Wanda was diagnosed with lung cancer. Sadly, Wanda lost her battle with lung cancer in 2011. Tammy and her daughter, Alexis, hope to raise awareness and much needed funds to help end lung cancer so that no one else has to bear the loss that they have.

Breathe Deep Kankakee is a 3-mile untimed walk and fun run to raise money for critical lung cancer research. The course is friendly to strollers, wheelchairs, and pets (as long as they are cleaned up after!). There will be a raffle and awards will be given to top fundraisers!

We are please to announce that Dr. Annabelle Veerapaneni of Rush-Riverside Cancer Institute will be a guest speaker!
