LUNGevity Breathe Deep DC– 5K Walk & Fun Run

Breathe Deep DC was created in 2009 by the late Jerry Sorkin, a Bethesda
resident husband, father of two, and nine-year lung cancer survivor. Jerry
dedicated his life to working on behalf of people diagnosed with lung cancer,
serving as the Vice Chairman of LUNGevity’s Board of Directors, an
advocate, and most importantly, a friend to everyone he met.
This year’s walk will take place on the National Mall right next to the
Smithsonian metro stop at 12th and Jefferson. Event day check-in starts at
9:00am and the walk will begin at 10:30am – rain or shine. The walk route
takes participants around the historic National Mall on a course that is
stroller, wheelchair, pet, and bicycle friendly. 100 percent of the proceeds go to
LUNGevity Foundation to fund lifesaving lung cancer research for early
detection and better treatments.
The walk will include music, free refreshments, kids’ activities, a social
media scavenger hunt, and team awards. The Washington Nationals Presidents
will even be getting in on the fun, taking photos with participants and more!
