Track Your Miles
In order to make this year’s event as interactive as possible, we’ve created a Reach the Beach OR Strava Club! Strava is a free application you can download on your smart phone to track your miles as you cycle in support of the American Lung Association.
In March, the American Lung Association launched a $25 million initiative to end COVID-19 and defend against future respiratory virus pandemics. At the same time, we're continuing our advocacy work to support clean air and redoubling our long-term commitments to lifesaving research.
