READY TO GET VIRTUAL
In order to make this year’s event as interactive as possible, we’ve created a LUNG FORCE Walk - Seattle Strava Club! Strava is a free application you can download on your smart phone to track your miles in support of the American Lung Association.
Find out more here!
From June 1st - June 30th we encourage you to head outdoors to one of the many beautiful trails throughout Puget Sound for your walk. Same mission, just a different place to walk.
Now more than ever the American Lung Association needs your support! The Lung Association just launched the COVID-19 Action Initiative, a comprehensive $25M initiative to end COVID-19 and defend against future respiratory virus pandemics.
This initiative will be used to fund respiratory research, enhance key public health measures through education and advocacy, and establish an advanced network of public and private entities to develop new vaccines, detection tests and treatment therapies, to stop future respiratory virus pandemics.
This is an ambitious undertaking, but with your help we can raise the funds to make this happen!
Please join the virtual community of individuals supporting lung health research through June 1st - June 30th. Be a part of the FORCE to not only help us find a cure for COVID-19 but to also defeat lung cancer and lung disease one step at a time.

American Lung Association's LUNG FORCE unites women and their loved ones across the country to stand together for lung health and against lung cancer. Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of both men and women in the U.S., and every five minutes a woman in this country learns she has lung cancer. More must be done to raise awareness and the research funding needed to defeat lung cancer once and for all.
American Lung Association's LUNG FORCE unites women to stand together against lung cancer and for lung health.
Only a force of many can take on lung cancer, the #1 cancer killer of women in the United States. Consider these eye-opening facts:
- Every five minutes, a woman in the U.S. is told that she has lung cancer.
- In the last 41 years, the rate of new lung cancer cases has fallen 35% among men while increasing 87 percent among women.
- Only 3 percent of women list lung cancer as a top-of-mind health concern.
- Anyone can get lung cancer.
