Lung cancer takes more lives than breast, prostate, and colon cancer combined. Rhode Island-area residents can join the movement to defeat lung cancer at the Seventh Annual Rhode Island Free to Breathe 5K run/walk and 1-mile walk on October 19 with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Free to Breathe’s research, education and awareness programs.

Register, raise funds, and run or walk – that’s all it takes to be a hero in the eyes of a person facing lung cancer.

Join hundreds of community members as they gather for a day of impact at the Rhode Island Free to Breathe Run/Walk, October 19 at Slater Memorial Park. Newport Avenue, Pawtucket, RI 02861.
