About the Give A Breath 5k walk/run
Started in 2019, the Give A Breath 5k walk/run wants to clear the air on lung cancer! After his own lung cancer diagnosis, Tim Monds was on a personal mission to spread awareness about the lung cancer causes, along with the care and the research needed to improve patient outcomes for those faced with the horrible disease. With his family by his side they started the Give a Breath Walk/Run to raise awareness and critical funds for lung cancer. All proceeds from this year's walk/run will fund lung cancer research and early detection methods happening now at the Royal Alexandra Hospital, with support from the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation in partnership with the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
