Event History

Ralene Hall, the Breathe Deep Busse Woods event coordinator, lost her mom to a long battle with lung cancer in 2009.  Instead of feeling helpless, Ralene chose to make a difference by planning and managing fundraising events on behalf of a lung cancer organization.  She settled on LUNGevity Foundation because of their dedication to lung cancer research, education, and support and their commitment to fiscal transparency.  Confident that the money raised at her events will directly fund lung cancer research is tremendously important to both her and the event participants.  Breathe Deep Busse Woods is an annual 5K and 10K that she coordinates to support the education, support, and research that will keep lung cancer patients alive and to honor the memory of her mother with her family and community.
