Registration for LUNGevity’s 2017 Breathe Deep DC 5K Walk is Now Open

Posted on August 08, 2017 in Community Involvement


We are excited to announce that registration for LUNGevity’s third annual Breathe Deep DC 5k Walk is officially open! Click on the LUNGevity logo to the right or on the upper right corner of our website for more information on how to donate and register.

Debby Burns is our Team Captain, and our team name is Open Technology Group: United for a Cure. Please select this team name when you register.

All registration fees and donations will go toward helping OTG meet its goal of raising $10,000 for life saving lung cancer research. We have kicked off the drive with a $5,000 donation, and we aim to surpass last year’s effort when we more than doubled our target. At OTG we are known for exceeding expectations, so let’s come together again to do just that and make a positive impact in the fight against lung cancer.

Please invite friends, family, and coworkers to participate in this fun and meaningful walk around the National Mall. You can run, walk, bike, rollerblade — and even pets are invited! The course is both wheelchair and stroller accessible, so all can join in and share a memorable time.

To receive event updates, cancer research news, and to follow Debby’s journey as she prepares to lead the OTG team in the walk, be sure to ‘like’ Debby’s Facebook page.

We very much look forward to walking with you on Sunday, November 5th, where we will honor OTG founder Leon Maxwell Burns Jr.’s life and vision, as well as the countless other individuals whose lives have been touched by lung cancer.
