Our Story

Breathe Deep Bay Area is a grassroots event planned and managed by a small group of volunteers from the Bay Area whose lives have been impacted by lung cancer. This 5K walk and timed run is an opportunity for our community to rally together against lung cancer. Together, our community has the power to raise the funds that might lead to new early detection technology or discover the best new targeted therapy and save hundreds of thousands of lives. After starting small in 2011, Breathe Deep Bay Area looks forward to tremendous growth in 2013 and we hope you’ll choose to be a part of it.
