Race Description

Breathe Deep San Diego: Patricia Marsh Memorial Walk and Fun Run is a grassroots event founded in 2012 to honor a mother who was taken too soon by lung cancer and to give a voice to those affected by the disease. In its seventh year, Breathe Deep San Diego continues to honor lung cancer survivors in the local community, remember loved ones lost to lung cancer, and provide hope to lung cancer patients and their families. Since its inception, the event has raised nearly USD 175,000 for lung cancer research, education, and support.

Breathe Deep San Diego founder and coordinator Jennifer Marsh explains, “I Breathe Deep for my mother, Patricia Marsh, who was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer in May 2008. She underwent a series of treatments, but ultimately passed away just 10 months later. After taking some time to process everything, I decided to get involved. I found LUNGevity and reached out to see if there was an event in San Diego. Almost immediately the staff responded, ‘No, do you want to start one?’ In 2012, I planned the first Breathe Deep San Diego: Patricia Marsh Memorial Walk and Fun Run. Since then, I have met some amazing people, who have become part of my extended family. My vision is to continue to build a lung cancer community. Not only are we raising money for a phenomenal cause, but we are also coming together to support each other. My greatest hope is that one day we find a cure.”
