Description

DID YOU KNOW? One in 16 people in the US will be diagnosed with Lung Cancer in their lifetime. More than 228,000 people in the US will be diagnosed with Lung Cancer this year, with a new diagnosis every 2.3 minutes.

This inaugural Run 4 Your Lungs 5K Run/Walk will raise awareness and provide funding for LDCT Lung Screenings in the early detection of Lung Cancer.  Early detection leads to better outcomes.

About Lakes Regional Park - Lakes Regional Park (often called Lakes Park) is a 279-acre public park located along Gladiolus Drive (CR 865) just south of Fort Myers, Florida. It opened on April 21, 1984, and is operated by the Lee County Department of Parks and Recreation. The park was named after its main feature: 158 acres of man-made freshwater lakes. The lakes were formed by a rock mine that operated on the property in the 1960s. The park is part of the Great Florida Birding Trail as well as Lee County's Tour de Parks bicycle route.
A variety of wildlife can be spotted throughout Lakes Park, especially birds. The park includes about 2.5 miles of walking and biking trails running along the lakes. A scenic boardwalk carries the trails over the lakes. Other features include playgrounds, a large field for recreational activities, as well as a fragrance garden with herb, butterfly, and cactus gardens.
