Join the FORCE to defeat lung cancer, COVID-19 and other lung diseases, because when you can’t breathe, nothing else matters.
Ready to Walk YOUR Way?
We will celebrate the LUNG FORCE Walk - New York City’s 7th anniversary by engaging in online activities, recognizing those living with lung disease, and completing a one mile walk your way, whether that be strolling in a nearby park, or hiking your favorite trail, solo or safely, with your family.
No matter when, how or where you participate, you will be active alongside a large community helping those impacted by lung cancer and other lung diseases like COVID-19, lung cancer, COPD and chronic asthma.
Funds raised will fuel life-saving research, support patients and their loved ones and advance preventative health initiatives, like the COVID-19 vaccine.
Why Do We Walk?
- Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of women and men.
- COVID-19 has taken the lives of over half a million Americans, including thousands of New Yorkers.
- More than 15 million people in the U.S. suffer from COPD, and it is the third leading cause of death by disease.
- Over 26 million Americans have asthma, including 6.1 million children.
- More than 35 million Americans are currently living with a chronic lung disease.
Now more than ever, we need you with us.
When you register and make a self-donation of $33 or more, you will receive an official American Lung Association Sports Scarf.
Your participation will turn small steps into great strides toward a future free of lung disease. Thank You!
