Lungs N Roses
Thank you guys so much for your interest in the Lungs 'n Roses team. Your love and support over the years has been unimaginable and thanks to you all, we have raised over $100,000....WOW! That money goes a long way in funding research that helps prolong the lives of people living with lung cancer. We cannot begin to describe how much your support means to us and our families.
Due to COVID-19, the race will be VIRTUAL this year. Free to Breathe is combining all of their walk/run events into one big event on October 3rd. We are planning some fun incentives for you guys to get you off Tik-Tok and out of the house (safely)….SO PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR THAT. Whether it be walking, running or even biking a 5k, we want to get you guys out there! There is no registration fee to join the team this year, so we want to encourage you guys to join the team to help spread awareness and money (awareness is key)!
Many of you may know that Erica Aronin and my mom, Tammi Fisher, joined forces to create the Lungs 'n Roses team, and with the love and support of our family and friends, it has grown into something we could've never imagined.
From the time my mom and Erica were diagnosed with lung cancer, they worked tirelessly to inspire and help people like themselves, ultimately creating the Lungs ’n Roses team to help raise awareness and money for people living with lung cancer. Their determination, passion, and leadership alongside their amazing group of friends and family has helped this team evolve into one of the largest lung cancer fundraising teams in both Atlanta and Athens, Georgia.
Obviously, this year is going to look a lot different because of COVID. We really want to emphasize raising AWARENESS and have the money take a backseat. I know a lot of people are struggling, whether it be physically and/or financially, but it is still important to spread our message. Cancer is an impenetrable force that continues to effect millions of people every year and it will persist no matter what else is going on in the world.
The money we raise together will support the Lung Cancer Research Foundation and its mission to improve lung cancer outcomes by funding research for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of lung cancer. On event day, our team will enjoy being together (virtually), but the real reward is that we are raising funds that will save lives.
On that note, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me(Andrew).
Again, thank you guys so much for your continued support! Please be safe and we hope to see you soon!
