The 4th Annual Free to Breathe 5K Run/Walk & 1 Mile Walk in Tacoma, is on Saturday, September 10. The event attracts participants who enjoy an amazing cause, fabulous prizes and a beautiful course along the Tacoma waterfront. Some run for fun, some run for the challenge, some run for themselves or a family member experiencing lung disease…some run in the memory of a loved one.

It provides an opportunity for lung cancer advocates, survivors and the community to come together to raise awareness and support to fight this disease. 100% of the net proceeds from this event will benefit the National Lung Cancer Partnership’s research, education and awareness programs.
