Where: The Jacksonville Landing

Free to Breathe is a national organization that aims to double lung cancer survival by 2022. The 5K walk is a fundraiser for lung cancer research and educational materials for patients and families. The nonprofit organization has awarded more than $5 million for lifesaving research since 2005. In addition, Free to Breathe invests in research and programs aimed to increase the number of patients in clinical trials, such as a matching service that helps pair patients with the clinical trials right for them and finding solutions to overcome barriers to clinical trial participation.

The UF Health Proton Therapy Institute is a proud sponsor of the Free to Breathe Walk and we’re inviting you to join us on Sept. 10 at the Jacksonville Landing. For more information on the event and to register, visit
