The American Lung Association is committed to the health and safety of our staff, participants, and volunteers. To help ensure the safety of our lung-compromised attendees, we will be requiring attendees to wear a face mask except when you are at least 6ft away from others, regardless of your vaccination status. Bandanas, face gators, and shields may not be substituted for masks. Please take a self-assessment on event morning by clicking here. If you feel sick, please stay home.

Let's Get Moving


Join us at the LUNG FORCE Walk, the American Lung Association's signature event to support and promote lung health. Please view our Everything You Need to Know for Walk Day sheet to get yourself prepared and excited! Here you can find where to park, what to bring and more.

Route maps can be found here.

This year we're partnering with Cleveland Clinic who’ll offer health screenings and information at the walk.

Your safety is always our number one priority. We are continually monitoring local conditions with regard to COVID-19. Check this page for the most up-to-date information about the event.

LUNG FORCE Walk at Great Lakes Science CenterThere's even a Walk Your Way virtual option for those who can’t make it to the event.

The LUNG FORCE Walk provides critical funds for lifesaving research, early detection initiatives, and pandemic defense and prevention through our COVID-19 Action Initiative and vaccine outreach.

This year we are partnering with Cleveland Clinic Foundation and a portion of the proceeds raised will be used for supporting our community through patient access to care as well as qualitative / clinical research to address health disparities and barriers to care.

      Why We Need You

      Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer deaths among women and men. Someone is diagnosed with lung cancer every two minutes and 14 seconds. 4 in 5 of those diagnosed will ultimately die of the disease.

      Why We're Hopeful

      More Americans than ever are surviving lung cancer. The survival rate has increased by a dramatic 13% to 22.6% in the last 5 years. Your support will help us continue the progress in our efforts to defeat lung cancer.
