LUNG FORCE Walks are the American Lung Association's signature outdoor event series to support and promote lung health. The Walks and Run/Walks provide critical funds for lifesaving research and early detection.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced all of us to reimagine how we come together and rally around important causes like lung cancer awareness and research funding.
No matter how we come together during this time—masked and spatially distant or virtually — we will do so in a spirit of hope and generosity to support those carrying the heavy burden of lung cancer and lung disease.
Register today. If you have questions about registration anything else about the event, please contact us.
