Last year, event participants from across Jacksonville raised $26,000 for Free to Breathe, a non-profit lung cancer research and advocacy organization dedicated to doubling lung cancer survival by 2022. This year’s goal is to surpass that total, which will support programs that ensure that more patients become survivors. To date, there are nearly 224,400 new cases of lung cancer and more than 158,000 deaths in the U.S. each year – more deaths than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined.
All proceeds from the event support Free to Breathe. Online registration closes September 7 – you can register and learn more about the event HERE.
