DULUTH, Minn. -

A Minnesota foundation is supporting lung cancer research and fitness at the same time.

A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation is hosting its first-ever run/walk 5k in Duluth.

A similar event has been held in the Twin Cities for years.

The foundation is adding this to the Northland after Representative Rick Nolan's daughter was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. She's a nonsmoking,  41-year-old wife and mother of four.

Proceeds from this event go toward researching the deadly cancer.

The run/walk is taking place Saturday, September 24 at 8 a.m. at Brighton Beach.
