RUN for your LUNGS
NON-PROFIT working hard to make a difference in the # 1 killer of all cancers combined, Lung Cancer! We are a group of lung cancer advocates who are dedicated to raising awareness for lung cancer & helping lung cancer patients in need in our southwest GA area. We have one fund raiser a year, in lung cancer awareness month (November) held at Lake Blackshear Resort.
We have a 5K race, a 1 mile walk, and short “Challenger League” event so our special needs friends can take part. We depend on the support of many wonderful sponsors who help us put on the event, which brings participants from all over GA and even a few from AL & FL.
Each Sponsor gets their name listed on the back of the shirts & they also receive 2 – participation packets and a 100 % tax write off for the donation! It’s great advertising as 700 shirts will be handed out!
Registration for each event is $30 per participant, and each receives a goody bag, a great long sleeve T-shirt with cool artwork of Lake Blackshear, BBQ lunch, cokes, water or beer for those 21 & up after the 5K finishes! We have digital chip timing, live radio DJ remote, great Tervis Tumblers for 30 1st place finishers, and a slide set up for keeping kids entertained! It’s a great fall day to do something GOOD and have FUN at the same time!
Here’s the really cool part! With the $ we raise, we give $1,000 per month to a local lung cancer patient in need! We do not have any salaries! It is a true labor of love and a brings the community together helping others .
