The walk will begin and end at the Rotary Pavillion. Breathe Deep Newark is a leisurely 3-mile walk/fun run along the campus path and gathering afterwards to raise funds for lung cancer research through the Lungevity Foundation in memory of Jean Mellars. The course is friendly to strollers, wheelchairs, and bicycles. There will be music, refreshments, and raffle prizes, and you can bid on great silent auction items throughout the event.

We are excited to welcome Newark Mayor Hall to the first annual Breathe Deep Newark!

Jean was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2005.  Unfortunately, her battle ended on May 4, 2005, less than six weeks from her diagnosis. In her memory, we, along with our father, have dedicated ourselves to help find a cure for lung cancer in hopes that early detection methods can be implemented.
