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.
Join us on a casual stroll around Boston Common for 2.5 (Tentative) miles or hang back and enjoy "Walkers Village" full of educational tents, food and fun. Bring the whole family and let the kids enjoy the KID'S CORNER! Leashed, well behaved dogs are welcome to join too!
Each registered participant will receive an Action Passport and if you visit each tent you can enter to win our Grand Prize!
We'll have prizes for our top fundraisers and our most spirited teams so come dressed in your best TURQUOISE and be sure to reach your fundraising goals!

In addition to special recognition on walk day, Leaders are acknowledged pre-event and post-event. LUNG FORCE Leaders make a significant difference in the lives of all those affected by lung disease as top fundraisers! See our current list of top fundraisers.
LUNG FORCE Heroes are patients, caregivers, family and friends of those who have lung disease and healthcare providers—anyone whose life has been impacted by lung cancer or another lung disease. Heroes are willing to share their story and help put a face to lung disease. Heroes may also be asked to speak at the LUNG FORCE Walk Kickoff, Corporate Recruitment Event and/or on Walk day.
If you’re interested in becoming a LUNG FORCE Hero, please contact Marianne Gibson for more information. And we invite you to Share Your Voice and your story with our community, where you can also hear from other people who are living with lung cancer or who have been impacted.
All participants who raise $150 or more qualify for our great LUNG FORCE Walk Incentives. Check them out today! You’ll receive fundraising tools and tips to help you reach your goals and support those with lung disease. And your dollars go where they’re needed: for research, education and advocacy to defeat lung cancer and other lung diseases.
