The Lungs4Life 5k was first hosted in 2008 after Caine Halter president of Caine Commercial and an Upstate leader died of lung cancer. Caine’s death inspired his family to raise awareness of the disease and money to fund research – a dream that resulted in the birth of this 5k walk and run through Cleveland Park in Downtown Greenville.
In the past 4 years, the event has drawn 5,500 participants, and through race entry fees and donations more than $645,000 has been raised and donated to lung cancer research.
