On September 13, 2014, the 10th Annual Astellas Oncology Chicago Lung Run, a 10K/5K run, walk, and rally on the city's beautiful lakefront at Montrose Harbor will be held! The Lung Run is one of the largest lung cancer events in the city, with more than 2,000 runners, lung cancer survivors, and representatives of leading Chicago hospitals participating.

Chicago Lung Run is held each year in support of lung cancer survivors and their families, and in memory of those who have lost their lives to lung cancer, the leading cancer killer in America. The mission of the Lung Run is to raise awareness of lung cancer and to raise much-needed funds for lung cancer research.

Jillian's Dream, a once-in-a-lifetime rappelling event, was created in memory of Jillian Miller, who lost her valiant battle against Stage IV lung cancer at the young age of 28. Jillian believed in “paying it forward”, therefore she participated in a clinical trial, if not to prolong her survival, but to eventually help someone who would receive the same diagnosis. Jillian’s Dream will be a celebration of Jillian’s life, bringing together those passionate about fighting lung cancer and providing critical funding for research to find a cure.

Participants are invited to raise funds for this event in exchange for the once-in-a-lifetime experience of rappelling over the edge of the 12-story Island Center building in Tampa, FL.
