Open Technology Group Doubles Fundraising Goal for Lung Cancer Research

Team OTG: United for a Cure

This year, Open Technology Group officially sponsored LUNGevity’s annual Breathe Deep DC 5K Walk for the first time on Sunday, November 1st. We had a great time together on the National Mall, and enjoyed some spots of sunshine throughout the morning.

One of our organization’s core values is to surpass expectations, and Team Open Technology Group: United for a Cure clearly demonstrated this value on Sunday. Our initial goal was to raise $10,000 in registration fees and donations. Our team quickly exceeded that goal, and we pushed our benchmark to new heights several times in order to meet the generosity of our friends, family members, and coworkers.

In the end, our team raised an astounding $20,000! 100% of these funds will be invested in cutting edge lung cancer research, bringing us closer to curing America’s leading cause of cancer death. We at OTG have proven that we can work together to make a difference, and this Sunday was our first of many wonderful Breathe Deep DC events.

Thank you to everyone who spread the word, donated, and participated. We look forward to uniting for a cure again next year!
