With a direct focus on the early detection of lung cancer, The Gift of Life and Breath is a 5k run/walk organized to provide research support and public awareness for early lung cancer detection.

It is the goal and intent of this event to offer a positive outreach to the community and give lung cancer the immediate attention it needs. Public awareness and support are both key factors in attracting the funding that is needed for this important endeavor.

The race is a means of thanking the participants for the gift they are giving to the futureā€¦the gift of life and breath.
