Tune into the Live Broadcast While You Walk

While Breathe Deep Boston will be gathering in-person on the morning of November 6th, participants from all across the country will be walking in their own neighborhoods.  For those participating virtually (and those who are in-person but want to tune in on the route as they walk), the program will be broadcast in real time through the Charge Running app. Each participant will be able to hear the broadcast, snap photos to share in the live chat feature, and track their mileage. You may even hear your name called out as you cross the 5K mark!

Get ready to tune in! From your smart phone, use this unique link to download the Charge Running app. Once the app downloads, navigate to events, and click on Breathe Deep TOGETHER to add the event to your calendar. If asked for a code, use BREATHE

Event Updates

LUNGevity strongly urges all attendees to follow the guidelines of the CDC: When attending outdoor activities, you are less likely to be exposed to COVID-19 when you stay at least 6 feet apart from people who don’t live with you. If you can’t stay at least 6 feet apart from people who don’t live with you, wear your mask.

People who have a condition or are taking medications that weaken their immune system may not be fully protected even if they are fully vaccinated. They should continue to take all precautions recommended for unvaccinated people, including wearing a well-fitted mask.
