Lung Run/Walk FORT MYERS

February 17, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Registration opens in December!

A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation is excited to return Florida to host the 2nd Annual A Breath of Hope Lung Run/Walk Fort Myers! You won’t want to miss this sunny, lakeside 5k run/walk as we raise lung cancer awareness and funds for drastically underfunded lung cancer research. Proceeds benefit U.S. lung cancer research programs at ABOHLF.

Enjoy a 5k walk or chip-timed run featuring music, snacks, kids’ activities, prizes for top fundraisers and race finishers, oncology updates, resources for lung cancer patients and families, a chance to honor or remember your loved one and fellowship with a community that understands and wants to fight the battle against lung cancer.

Free t-shirts guaranteed for those who register before February 5th! To honor or remember your loved one by having their first and last name printed on the back of the t-shirt, register before February 5th.

If you can’t attend the event February 17, but still want to make a difference, register for FREE as a “Virtual Supporter” and fundraise in honor or memory of your loved one. You could win a gift card prize!
