Welcome to LUNG FORCE Walk - Honolulu, HI
Join us as we raise awareness and funds to fight against lung cancer and for lung health. Together, we are a FORCE to be reckoned with.
Did you know?
- Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer in America, and most people aren’t aware.
- Anyone can get it — if you have lungs, you can get lung cancer, and it’s on the rise in women.
- More than 33 million Americans suffer from asthma, COPD (which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis), and other lung diseases.
By joining our LUNG FORCE Walk and raising funds, you can help make a difference in lives that desperately need it. Register today! Now is the time to raise our voices against lung cancer—and for lung health.
I am honored to lead this year’s 2016 LUNG FORCE Walk as Honorary Chair. It has also been a great experience to represent UHA Health Insurance as a member of the LUNG FORCE Hawaii Women’s Cabinet.
Lung cancer education and prevention is a personal mission that is very dear to my heart, especially since my mother lost her life to lung cancer. It wasn’t until many years after her death that I learned lung cancer is the number one cancer killer of women, taking the lives of almost twice as many women each year than any other cancer.
Since my involvement with the inauguration of LUNG FORCE in 2014, I’ve seen a critical need to increase awareness about women’s lung health and work toward ultimately ending this lung cancer crisis. The fact is that anyone can get lung cancer including women who have never smoked or who have successfully quit smoking. It’s important to bring this to light and make lung cancer a public health priority. We owe it to our sisters, our daughters, our wives, and our mothers.
Please join us on Saturday, November 5th to share your voice and help raise funds for the important work that the American Lung Association in Hawaii is doing in research, advocacy, education, and awareness. Together, we can look forward to an even more successful 2016 Walk!
Free registration is now open.
