Directions & MapParking

Breathe 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 skies!

Online registration 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.

Please keep in 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 your continued support – we’ll see you on Sunday!
