ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Hundreds of local residents are joining together to fight lung cancer in a family friendly bike ride and yogathon.

The Albuquerque Free to Breathe Bike Ride and Yogathon will be on Sunday, April 3 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.

Martín Leger, Melora Lager,and Rhonda Peterson joined KRQE’s This Morning team to discuss the event. Watch above.

This year’s event will feature a 20-mile, 10-mile and 6-mile bike ride course and the inaugural 120-minute yogathon. The yogathon will be a varied intensity yoga practice preceded by a 30-minute outdoor yoga warm-up and ending with a 30-minute flow cool down.

This year, the event is dedicated to Tim Peterson. Tim was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer in 2013 and passed away in June 2015.

All proceeds will support Free to Breathe, a lung cancer research and advocacy organization dedicating to doubling lung cancer survival by 2022.
