Take on the Sixth Annual Free to Breathe Lung Cancer 5K to help battle one of the deadliest diseases in America, which accounts for more than a quarter of all cancer deaths. The November 6th race through Fairmount Park will support the Pennsylvania Lung Cancer Partnership’s research, education and awareness programs, and bring together both advocates and survivors. As an added incentive, all participants get discounted admission to the Please Touch Museum, where the event starts, now through race day.

$30, November 6, 8:30 a.m., Memorial Hall (across from Please Touch Museum), 4231 Avenue of the Republic.
