Breathe Deep TOGETHER, LUNGevity’s nationwide walk, is back this fall during Lung Cancer Awareness Month! Join the entire Breathe Deep community on November 6th to help stop lung cancer.

Tune into our live broadcast at 10 a.m. ET  on November 6 with participants from across the country! This hour-long broadcast will stream through the Charge Running app and feature survivor stories, messages from sponsors, live shout-outs from the walk, updates on what is happening at LUNGevity – all while you walk! In addition to the broadcast, you will be able to track your miles, snap photos and exchange messages with other walkers in the group chat feature! You might even hear your name called out as you cross the 5K “finish line”!

We will also have two in-person events occurring simultaneously: Breathe Deep Boston and Breathe Deep NYC, both on November 6! If you live locally, we are so excited to see you in person!

This year marks 20 years of LUNGevity events and we cannot wait to celebrate TOGETHER. Still not sure if Breathe Deep TOGETHER is for you? Read our six reasons why you should participate this fall.  

1. Celebrate LCAM with us!

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, and we can’t wait to kick it off with this nationwide walk! What better way to spread awareness about lung cancer than to have participants walking all across the country (and beyond!) in their Breathe Deep gear (or favorite blue clothing)!

2. Walk in honor or in memory of your loved one!

As of October 10, we have 167 teams signed up to walk on the morning of November 6th, all who have been impacted by lung cancer in some way.

3. Connect with fellow lung cancer survivors and caregivers!

Whether you are joining us at one of our in-person events or tuning in to our live broadcast from your neighborhood, you will have the opportunity to connect with participants from across the country (and within your community) that are on this journey with you!

4. Raise money for lung cancer!

We have come a long way in the 20 years since our first event took place (happy anniversary to us!), and we are hopeful for the future of those impacted by lung cancer. We continue to walk each year and raise funds so we can change the outcomes for people living with lung cancer through research, education and support. 

BONUS: In addition to raising funds for critical research, you can also earn fun LUNGevity swag along the way, from a t-shirt to a cooler! 

5. Spread awareness!

From the moment you sign up, we provide you with ways to help spread the word about LUNGevity, the walk and our important work - from updating your fundraising page with your personal story and sharing on social media to getting out in your neighborhood!

We also encourage our walkers to join the LUNGevity Action Network and learn what you can do to be an advocate in your community. 

6. Team up to make an impact!

Breathe Deep TOGETHER is perfect for friends, family, colleagues, and even acquaintances to come together! We provide you with a team captain guide, fundraising guide, and fun ways to connect in-person or virtually as you work to raise funds and awareness as a TEAM!

You won’t want to miss this impactful morning of celebration, hope, and remembrance. Register as an individual, team, or company today! Have questions? Send an email to hdoran@lungevity.org and we can help you get started!
