Breathe Deep DC was started by Jerry Sorkin, a Bethesda father of two, who was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer in 2007. With the help of LUNGevity Foundation, Sorkin and his friends created Breathe Deep DC, a 5K walk to raise awareness and funds for lung cancer research.
The first Breathe Deep DC was held in November 2009. In seven years, the event has hosted thousands of participants and raised over $1 million. Breathe Deep DC provides a wonderful opportunity for individuals affected by lung cancer to be with others and to feel the power of a community coming together—to remember lives lost and to support those fighting the disease.
The course is stroller, wheelchair, pet, and bicycle friendly and the walk will take place rain or shine!
