A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation is excited to expand into Florida to host the first-ever 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 Monday, February 13th! To honor or remember your loved one by having their first and last name printed on the back of the t-shirt, register before Monday, February 13th.
If you can’t attend the event February 25, 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!
