Free to Breathe Walk
The 2nd virtual Free to Breathe Walk took place on October 2, 2021. This was our biggest virtual event ever! Despite not being able to gather in person, the walk truly brought the lung cancer community together in a heartwarming and inspirational way.
Philadelphia 6abc’s Nydia Han and radio personality Jaymie Bowles emceed a fun, informative rally, before participants went off to walk in their own neighborhoods. Guests included Dr. Ibiayi Dogogo-Jack from Massachusetts General Hospital and lung cancer survivor Anne Laporte. Watch the recording below or on Facebook Live.
Free to Breathe Yoga
Free to Breathe Yoga was our first-ever virtual event in 2020, and we repeated its success on Saturday, April 24, 2021. We heard from from inspiring speakers including lung cancer survivors Jaymie Bowles and Dr. Sydney Barned; and LCRF grantee Dr. Triparna Sen. Risë Van Doosselaere led a yoga practice to cap off the event. Watch the recording of the livestream below.
Kites for a Cure
Free to Breathe Kites began as Kites for a Cure in 2008, when a group of friends and family gathered in New Jersey to fly kites in memory of Elliot Chalmé A’H, who passed away from lung cancer. The fundraiser went national in 2020 as a virtual event.
Below you can watch the recording of the June 26, 2021 livestream, which ended with an invitation for participants to go fly their kites.
