Wilhelmina E. Bell-Taylor Race for Lung Life 5K Run/Walk
Race for Lung Life is an annual, non-competitive, family-oriented 5K run/walk that raises funds for lung cancer research, encourages others to learn the facts about the disease, and helps end the stigma associated with it.
The event is also held in memory of Wilhelmina Bell-Taylor, a lung cancer heroine who never smoked a day in her life. She fought courageously from the moment she was diagnosed in April 2004 until she passed away on April 24, 2008.
This year proceeds benefit the lung cancer research of Dr. Julie Brahmer
