Sponsor Information

To become a sponsor contact Nikisha Belt nbelt@ucsd.edu.

We invite you to participate in the San Diego Breath of Hope Lung Cancer 5K Walk benefiting lung cancer prevention, early detection, clinical research and patient care at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health.

Support from our community partners is vital to the success of this event. Your sponsorship puts you at the forefront of Moores Cancer Center’s fight against lung cancer.

Breath of Hope celebrates the lives of survivors and honors those whom lung cancer has taken from us. Lung cancer is the leading cause of death among both men and women and claims the lives of 1.3 million Americans each year. Despite these overwhelming statistics, lung cancer receives only a fraction of the funding other forms of cancer receive. Breath of Hope was founded by Mike Stevens, Maria Diaz and Kathleen Larson who have inspired the lives of countless others — to date the Breath of Hope Walk has provided more than $8600,000 to lung cancer research.

If you have any questions about Breath of Hope, or if you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact Nikisha Belt at 858-246-1230 or via email at nbelt@ucsd.edu.

It is the mission of San Diego Breath of Hope to raise public awareness of lung cancer, generate funds dedicated to finding a cure, and to honor and celebrate our lung cancer survivors with their friends and family. With your generous support we can fulfill this mission and win the fight against lung cancer.

To be recognized on printed material sponsorships must be received no later than March 1, 2017.
