LUNG FORCE Walk - New York

Karen's Kindness

Welcome to Team Karen's Kindness!

Thank you for supporting Team Karen's Kindness, a dedicated fundraising team for the American Lung Association's LUNG FORCE Walk.

Why We Walk

We walk to honor our cherished mother, Karen Molesphini Cowley, who passed away from interstitial lung disease on March 30, 2022. As we approach the 2nd anniversary of her passing, we continue our mission to raise awareness and funds for those affected by lung disease. Since our team's inception, we've raised over $28,000, all thanks to the generosity of supporters like you.

Expanding Our Mission

As we enter our third year participating in the walk, we're expanding our team's dedication to include other loved ones lost to lung cancer, such as our grandfather, Albert J Molesphini, and dear friend, Diann Valentini. 

Additionally, we now walk to honor our father, John Cowley, who sadly passed in January. Though he may not have ever been able to physically walk with our team, we will continue to feel his love and support beside us in spirit.

The Impact Of Your Donation

Your participation and donations will significantly contribute to early detection efforts and enhance life-saving treatments, ensuring everyone battling lung disease has a fighting chance.

Since the inaugural Lung Force walk in 2014, participants have collectively raised over $30 million for lung cancer research. This remarkable support has led to a 52% increase in the lung cancer survival rate over the last decade, along with the development of 50 new lung cancer treatments since 2016.
