Race Description

Breathe Deep Toledo is a grassroots 5K fun run and walk founded by the family of Ellen Adler, a never-smoker who was diagnosed with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer and died from this awful disease only 15 months later.

Like many of us, Ellen was surprised to discover that 60% of lung cancer patients either never smoked or already quit. After diagnosis, Ellen entered into a clinical trial, which extended her life and increased her ability to function while living with the disease.

LUNGevity funds research into the development of treatments for these genetic mutations, such as Ellen’s immunotherapy trial, as well as services like their Clinical Trials Ambassadors program, which encourages patient participation in these critical studies. Ellen’s family wants to motivate people in her hometown of Toledo to help fund LUNGevity’s lifesaving research, education, and support so that others don’t have to go through what she did. Help us improve the survivorship of lung cancer … for all our families!

Lung Cancer Survivor, Volunteer, Child Under 5: USD 0.0
Senior (60+) or Student (with valid ID): USD 15.0
Youth (5-13 years old): USD 10.0
