Welcome to the 5th Annual DeFrancos Lung Run. It seems like just yesterday that all this was just an idea, a hope to help support families with respiratory and lung issues. We are just so overwhelmed with the support that we have received for this event. We want to say thank you to all of our sponsors and participants over the years who keep coming back every year to support this amazing cause. It would not be possible without your help!

Last year was our first year with The Lung Association after The Give 2 Live campaign came to an end. It was a great transition and we could not have asked for a better charity to work with. Melanie (The Lung Association) has jumped in with both feet and her energy and passion has given this event new life and new possibilities.

We continue to grow and improve every year. We know this year will be the best year yet and we hope that everyone can join us Sunday, October 1st 2017.
