Nydia Han emcees Free to Breathe 5K in Fairmount Park. Sarah Bloomquist reports during Action News at 5 p.m. on November 4, 2018.

Hundreds of people laced up their sneakers and gathered in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park Sunday morning for a good cause.

They took part in the annual Free to Breathe 5K run and walk.

The event raises money for lung cancer research, and so far nearly $200,000 has been donated.

Our own Nydia Han was the emcee of the event.

The cause is very personal to Nydia, as her mother died of lung cancer.
