Deep DC is this Sunday!
Join us this Sunday, November 2, for the
6th annual Breathe Deep DC 5K walk to stop lung cancer. We’ll be joined by NBC4 Chief Meteorologist
Doug Kammerer who promises a beautiful (but possibly chilly) day and sunny
will remain open through 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 31, so recruit a
few more friends to join your team and we'll meet you on the Mall.
In addition to
Doug Kammerer, we’ll be joined by Teddy, Abe and George, three of the
Washington Nationals Racing Presidents.
We have a great day planned for the conclusion of the 5K including lawn
games, music, refreshments and kids’ activities.

mind Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend, so please be sure to set your
clock back one hour before you go to bed on Saturday night. You can find details for pre-event t-shirt
pick up and a race day schedule below.
Thank you for
