Registration for LUNGevity’s 2019 Breathe Deep DC 5K Walk is Now Open

Posted on August 12, 2019 in Community Involvement


We are very thrilled to announce that registration for LUNGevity’s annual Breathe Deep DC 5k Walk is officially open. This year, we hit an important milestone – it’s our five-year anniversary since we first participated in 2015!

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 $20,000 for life saving lung cancer research. We have kicked off the drive with a $5,000 donation, and now it’s your turn. At OTG we are known for exceeding expectations, and last year, the team did just that – by raising twice our goal! Let’s come together once again to 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-friendly, 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 3rd, 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.
