Thanks to everyone who came out to the LUNG FORCE Run/Walk!  Race results are in!  Click HERE!

Help us defeat lung cancer and lung disease one step at a time.

Join us as we run and walk together to raise awareness and funds to defeat lung cancer and raise our voices for lung health. After the Run/Walk, enjoy a FREE breakfast on the Folly Beach Fishing pier—the best breakfast on the edge of America! All finishers will receive medals, and the top male and female runners will each receive a LUNG FORCE surf board! This year we are also introducing the Alvin P. Tiedemann Traveling Trophy, named for a native Charlestonian and community leader. Al was an active member of the philanthropic community, who loved sailing, dogs, and family. The Alvin P. Tiedemann Traveling Trophy will be awarded to the top fundraising team.
