Event Info

Our LUNG FORCE Walk is like no other charity event. Lung cancer is increasing among women, affecting our mothers, daughters, sisters and loved ones across all races and ethnicities. Yet, for most women, it’s not even on their radar as a potential risk. The LUNG FORCE Walk is raising awareness and funds to help those impacted by lung cancer and other lung diseases, including asthma and COPD. Our Walk features LUNG FORCE Heroes and their families, a LUNG FORCE Action Passport to interactive education areas, fun games and activities, and inspiring stories of hope. So, join with us as we share our voices and rally our friends, neighbors and colleagues to join the fight against lung cancer—and for lung health.

Funds raised will support research, advocacy, education and awareness for those impacted by lung disease. With your help, the dollars raised can help researchers develop better early detection methods, treatments and ultimately, cures.

Event Schedule

LUNG FORCE passport travel, performances, LUNG FORCE Hero meet & greet, and a wonderful 5K walk in the park with a LUNG FORCE loop option, a shorter route for those with breathing difficulties. The event ends at 11:00 AM.

LUNG FORCE Spirit Poms

All participants will receive a LUNG Force Honor Ribbon or Spirit Pom to carry and wave on Walk day. Honor Ribbons and Spirit Poms represent loved ones who are currently struggling with or have lost their battle with lung disease, and all those affected by lung disease.
