The 2016 Legwork for Lungs 5k & Mile Walk

  In memory of Yevgeniya Nikelberg

Whether you choose to come to support lung cancer research, to set a PR, or just to spend a fun Sunday morning with family and friends, this event only requires you to be prepared to use your lungs for their intended purpose: movement!

The Legwork for Lungs 5k and Mile Walk is a third-annual event that will take place on Sunday, November 20th, 2016, and though its main focus will be our run (of course!), there will also be a 1-mile fitness walk, Tug-o-War Battle, raffle, and carnival games. Food, music, prizes, shirts, and medals will be provided.

This event is held to raise funds for lung cancer research at MSKCC during Lung Cancer Awareness Month. It is inspired by the one person's battle with an unforgiving diagnosis. Read more here.
