Twin Cities Lung Run/Walk

Did you know that lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States? Did you know that less money is spent on lung cancer research than any other cancer? A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation and the Twin Cities Lung Run/Walk were created by lung cancer patients, survivors and their families to change the inequality of lung cancer funding. The Twin Cities Lung Run/Walk started in 2007 and has raised over $400,000 to support lung cancer research and awareness.
