The Free To Breathe 5 K Run

I received this email about the Free To Breathe 5 K Run - never hear of the organization and it goes against my campaign to encourage kids to smoke but I will post it anyway.   Who in the hell wants to run 5K inthe middle of August on the Eastern Shore?

The Free to Breathe Delmarva 5K Run/Walk, 1 Mile Walk and Kids’ Dash is an excellent way for Delmarva-area residents to get involved in a great cause. All proceeds benefit the National Lung Cancer Partnership - particularly its education, awareness programs and research. Lung cancer takes more lives than any other cancer in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia, yet resources and research for this cancer continue to be severely underfunded.
Below is a calendar listing for the event. If you could post it to your site and/or print it in your publication we would greatly appreciate it. Please let me know if you need any further information or are interested in speaking with an event spokesperson.
Kind regards,
Jessica Jurek
