The LUNGevity Foundation is the largest lung cancer-focused nonprofit organization in the country whose mission is to change outcomes for people with lung cancer through research, education, and support.
Breathe Deep North Shore is a 5K Fun Run, 2-mile walk and Balloon Launch to raise essential funds for lung cancer research. This year’s event took place at the Deerfield High School football field on Sunday, April 26, 2015. During the walk, participants were educated with a number of facts and statistics on lung cancer.
By participating in the walk and assisting with event logistics, the GCG team helped the LUNGevity Foundation raise $188,000 just for the North Shore walk alone, making the grand total for six years of fundraising $788,000.
