Breathe Deep DC on 11.15.09

Breathe Deep DC, the 5k to cure lung cancer was on Sunday and it was a huge success. All the signs and t-shirts I designed turned out great. In all, the event raised $245,000 for a sadly underfunded area of cancer research. The cancer that kills the most Americans each year and yet gets some of the least funding. We exceeded the original fund raising goal of $150,000 by almost $100,000 (and LUNGevity had even originally recommended the goal be only $20,000)! Here's a video someone by the name of purplespottedcow086 posted on YouTube with photos from the day of the event. It was more than 70 degrees and a great day for a walk on the Washington Mall for an important cause.
