It’s that time of year again – time to rally the troops and raise our voices to change the way lung cancer is treated in our country. We want more research, more awareness, earlier detection and improved support for patients. Together, we will create the change we all desire.
The A Breath of Hope Lung Run/Walk Twin Cities raises awareness about lung cancer and funds the A Breath of Hope lung cancer research program. It is one of the largest lung cancer events in the U.S. It also provides patient and family support programming through resource tables, oncology education and for those who have lost their loved one, through the Rose Raft of Remembrance Ceremony following the walk.
This event also features a certified chip-timed 5 or 10k run, 5k walk or survivor bus tour, live music, custom t-shirts that name our loved ones (and show our unity!!), custom-designed fans with a picture of your loved one for teams that raise $250 or more, snacks, kids’ activities, and gift card prizes for top fundraisers and race finishers. All participants (including walkers) will receive a t-shirt; 10k and 5k runners will receive a technical running tank shirt and medal.
Free printed t-shirts guaranteed for those who register before July 31st. To honor or remember your loved one and have their first and last name printed on the back of the t-shirt, register before July 31st. First and last names will also be printed on the side of the survivor bus.
