Why Do We Walk?

  • Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of women.
  • Anyone can get it – if you have lungs, you can get lung cancer, and it's on the rise in women.
  • Because every 5 minutes, a woman in the United States is told that she has lung cancer.
  • More than 35 million Americans suffer from asthma, COPD (which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis), and other lung diseases.

By joining our LUNG FORCE Walk and raising funds, you can help make a difference for all those affected by lung disease.. Now is the time to raise our voices against lung cancer—and for lung health. Together, we are a FORCE to be reckoned with!
