As the trusted champion of lung health, the American Lung Association closely follows CDC guidance related to COVID-19. Our COVID-19 safety protocols may shift in response to updated COVID-19 local conditions and local ordinances. When the local community spread referenced on the CDC map is high, shown in orange, masks are encouraged in high traffic areas. The American Lung Association reserves the right to adjust safety protocols, up to seven days prior, based on CDC guidance and/or venue, state, and local ordinances.
Let’s Get Moving
Join us at the LUNG FORCE Walk Seattle presented by Swedish, the American Lung Association's signature event to support and promote lung health.
It doesn't matter whether you stroll, saunter, or power-walk: all are welcome at LUNG FORCE Walks. It’s a celebratory atmosphere for all ages and abilities.
Your safety is always our number one priority. We are continually monitoring local conditions with regard to COVID-19. Check this page for the most up-to-date information about the event.
There’s even a Walk Your Way virtual option for those who can’t make it to the event.
The LUNG FORCE Walk provides critical funds for lifesaving research, early detection initiatives, and pandemic defense and prevention through our COVID-19 Action Initiative and vaccine outreach.
Register today and save your spot. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this year's event.
Party with us at Elsom Cellars on March 30th beginning at 5 p.m.! We're kicking off your Walk fundraising and celebrating your commitment to creating a world free of lung disease. Click here to RSVP and for details.
Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer deaths among women and men. Someone is diagnosed with lung cancer every two minutes and 14 seconds. 4 in 5 of those diagnosed will ultimately die of the disease.
Why We're Hopeful
More Americans than ever are surviving lung cancer. The survival rate has increased by a dramatic 13% to 22.6% in the last 5 years. Your support will help us continue the progress in our efforts to defeat lung cancer.
