Small Steps, Bold Strides

Join us in the fresh air at this year’s LUNG FORCE Walk Bridgewater, the American Lung Association's signature event to support and promote lung health.

Be part of the FORCE that shapes the event! Learn more about our LUNG FORCE Walk Bridgewater Leadership Committee.

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. And it’s more than a Walk!

  • Visit our Mission Tents to sign a petition promoting lung health in your community, snap a selfie for social media, pay tribute to those living with lung disease and lives lost and more.
  • Recognize community leaders in lung health, including this year's Medical Honoree TBD
  • Hear inspirational stories from LUNG FORCE Heroes and Champions and more.
  • Create a sea of turquoise and compete for the Best Turquoise Outfit prize!
  • Entertain the kids in our Kids Zone, with games, a balloon twister, and more!

There’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 awareness outreach to vulnerable communities.

      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.
