Thank you to all our participants, donors, sponsors, and volunteers! We are so grateful for your support of lung health. Check our Facebook page (American Lung Association in South Carolina) for photos, which we will be posting soon! For race results, click here.

Small Steps, Bold Strides

Join us and turn small steps into bold strides toward a world without lung cancer and lung disease.

Come out and experience the celebratory and welcoming atmosphere of a LUNG FORCE event.

It doesn't matter how you roll, whether you like to saunter, power-walk or stroll. You can even run to your lungs' content at one of our Run/Walk events. There's a Walk Your Way virtual option for those who can't make it to the event.

The LUNG FORCE Run/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.
