I got an email from Bridget sending me a heads up about a great way to get exercise and help at the same time. Check it out...
When Dan Oulette’s wife lost her mother Paula to lung cancer in 2008, only three months after being diagnosed, it was devastating to their family. To honor his mother-in-law’s memory he organized for three consecutive years a Free to Breathe® event in Providence, R.I., where he lived at the time, to raise funds to support the National Lung Cancer Partnership’s vital research, education and awareness programs.
At the end of 2010 Dan and his family packed their bags and moved to Austin, Texas and he has vowed to continue his mission by organizing the inaugural Free to Breathe® Austin 5K Fun Run/Walk, 1 Mile Walk and Kids’ Dash on Saturday, November 5. He hopes to rally the community together to bring support to others and awareness to a disease that takes more lives than breast, colon and prostate cancer combined.
