$17 for the Breeze Against Wheeze Race Entry, 5K Run or 3K Walk ($20 Value)

Now in its 12th year, the event begins both races on Saturday, May 4, at 11 a.m. on Brown University’s Ittleson Quadrangle. Youngsters participating in the preceding kids’ race, which starts at 10:15 a.m., compete for free.

Breeze Against Wheeze 5K Run or 3K Walk

Devised in 2001 by a Brown University medical student in order to support Hasbro Children's Hospital's Asthma Camp, the annual Breeze Against Wheeze 5K run and 3K walk raises a quarter of the funds the camp needs each year to educate youngsters about managing a disease that stands as the leading cause of child hospitalization nationwide. At the start of the race, athletes trek across the Brown University campus and down Blackstone Boulevard, speeding past other runners or strolling at a heart-healthy pace to show their anti-asthma verve. The top competitor in each age bracket, plus the three fastest men and women overall, win a bounty of gift certificates and sports gear to help fuel their future challenges, while postrace raffles lend the chance for any participant to be crowned a winner. Before the adult events, kids can race for free, testing their endurance and agility without crawling through the TV screen into their favorite video game.
