Video: 600+ run, walk Breathe Deep Seattle 2013 at Lincoln Park

August 10, 2013 at 11:00 am | In Health, How to help, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

After the rain accompanying the overnight thunderstorm cleared the air, more than 600 people participating in this morning’s Breathe Deep Seattle could truly do just that. They ran and walked to raise money for the lung-cancer-fighting LUNGevity Foundation – after warming up in the slightly chilly morning air:

This is the third year for BDS – which had a $15,000 fundraising goal for year one, a goal of five times that this year, and has already exceeded that new goal, passing $88,000 so far for 2013, according to the official website (look for the gauge on the lower-right side of the page).

P.S. For those who ran the race as a timed 5K – results are here.

  1. Fun! And a great cause. Lung cancer is a major killer.

  2. I appreciate the cause, but this event was way too big for park capacity.
    .
    Many neighborhood families had planned recreation time that was abruptly cancelled by this event.
    .
    Please do not plan to hoard the entire parking lot for your event! Thank you!

  3. Well over half of all cancer deaths are due to lung cancer. Breast and prostate cancer strike more people, but their fatality rate is a fraction of lung cancer.
