Ready to Get Virtual

We want to assure you that your health and safety is our top priority. Because of this we’ve decided to make the LUNG FORCE Walk a virtual event.

From September 21 - 27 we encourage you to walk (run, bike or climb) while raising critical funds. Same mission, just a different place to show your support. Get involved and complete your very own Virtual Action Passport! Post your progress on our Walk Facebook Group and all participants who complete 4 of the 7 activities and submit their passport to EventsCHI@Lung.org will be entered to win a grand prize! Passport must be submitted by Tuesday, September 29th.

Can’t participate but still would like to support the event? Please click here to make a general donation.


Because Breathing is Living!

The LUNG FORCE Walks have gone virtual this year. Through this virtual event, you can stay active (practicing safe social distancing) while supporting the work of the American Lung Association. Same important 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, fund research and defend against future respiratory virus pandemics.

Please join the virtual community of individuals supporting lung health research by joining us during our LUNG FORCE Walk Week September 21- 27th. 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.

Registration has opened! Share the word with your friends, families, and co-workers to register and join your team. Participants who raise $100 by September 27, 2020 will receive a LUNG FORCE t-shirt in the mail.

When you make a self-donation of $33 or more, you will receive an official American Lung Association Sports Scarf.

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.

The LUNG FORCE Walk is a great opportunity to gather family, friends, and coworkers for a morning of healthy activity and purpose. The Walks provide critical funds for life-saving research and early detection initiatives.

Most event participants form teams. You can name your team in honor of a team member or loved one, or name it after your business, or even pick a "punny" name. Have fun. Be creative.
