Join us at the LUNG FORCE Walk, the American Lung Association's signature event to support and promote lung health.

It doesn't matter whether you stroll, saunter, or power-walk: all are welcome at LUNG FORCE Walks. It’s a celebratory atmosphere for all ages and abilities.

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.

There’s even a Walk Your Way virtual option for those who can’t make it to the event.

Our Walk Safe Commitment

Our Walk Safe Commitment, in partnership with the Detroit Zoo, includes spatial distancing, health screenings, sanitation protocols, and face masks.

The American Lung Association is committed to the health and safety of our participants and volunteers. We will continue to closely monitor public health conditions and CDC guidelines as we plan for the 2021 event.

      Why We Need You With Us

      Every two minutes and 14 seconds someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with lung cancer, and 4 in 5 of those diagnosed will ultimately die from the disease. Yet, more Americans than ever are surviving lung cancer. While the disease remains the leading cause of cancer deaths among both women and men, over the past five years, the survival rate has increased by a dramatic 13% to 22.6%. Your support will help us continue the progress in our efforts to defeat lung cancer.
