The Central Pennsylvania Free to Breathe Run/Walk returns this year for the fifth time after a very successful event in 2013.  This year, we anticipate attracting upwards of 550-600 participants and raising $55,000 in critical funding.  Lung cancer has touched many families in the Central Pennsylvania area; in fact, approximately 1 in 3 people know someone who has been diagnosed with or has passed away from lung cancer.  We believe that our walk is an important source of both fundraising and support for this underserved community, and that partnership with the Central Pennsylvania Free to Breathe offers an incredible opportunity for your business to engage and support the lung cancer community. 

As part of our efforts to raise as much money as possible, we are looking for businesses who can support us by donating items like water and food or items for our silent auction.  These items will help to offset the costs associated with putting on an event like this one and will go a long way to help us raise more money to support the fundraising efforts of Free to Breathe.  A donation from your business would be an important boost to our overall fundraising and help to make our event a great success in the community.
