two women waving ribbons at a LUNG FORCE WalkWe 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.

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.
