    Join LUNGevity and NBC4 for the 2013 Breathe Deep D.C. walk Nov. 3 on the National Mall.

    This 5K, untimed walk raises funds for critical lung research. Breathe Deep D.C. was created by Jerry Sorkin, a Bethesda father of two, who was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer in 2007.

    The course is friendly to strollers, wheelchairs, and pets (though the pets must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet -- and walkers with pets must cleaned up afterward).

    There's also music, free refreshments, and kids' activities. Awards will be given to the largest team, the top fundraising team, and the most creative team name.
