Join us for the 2023 South Florida LUNG FORCE Turquoise Takeover!

This year LUNG FORCE Turquoise Takeover falls on the week of May 8 - 14, and we need YOU to help turn the town TURQUOISE!

During Turquoise Takeover Week you can play a vital role as an Ambassador by participating in our many Spirit Week activities, hosting your own Turquoise Takeover fundraising event with your coworkers or friends & family, registering as a LUNG FORCE Hero (as a lung cancer survivor or a loved one of someone impacted by lung cancer), or even organizing your own Turquoise Takeover Run/Walk.

The LUNG FORCE Turquoise Takeover provides critical funds for lifesaving research and programs, early detection initiatives, and pandemic defense, relief, and prevention through our COVID-19 Action Initiative and vaccine education resources.

Register today and YOU can help make a difference in your community. By registering you are committing to becoming a lung health advocate via participating in the LUNG FORCE Run/Walk, Light the Way Luminary Procession and/or becoming a Turquoise Takeover Ambassador.


Help us to unlock the $35,000 match!

Cleveland Clinic Florida will be supporting the Matching Gift Challenge, designed to inspire community members to raise $35,000 in South Florida toward a better future for all patients living with lung cancer and their loved ones. Every dollar raised for this campaign, from now until June 30th, will be matched 1:1 to benefit the American Lung Association's mission to defeat lung cancer. 

Tito's Handmade Vodka has committed to being a force against lung cancer and are challenging members of the community to do the same. Dollar for dollar, every donation will be matched. We ask you to join the historical movement in the fight against lung cancer by making a meaningful contribution to the Turquoise Takeover Matching Gift Challenge today.


DID YOU KNOW: Every dollar we raise, 90 cents goes right back to support local research and provide education and patient programs to help the 37 million Americans impacted by lung disease and lung cancer, the #1 cancer-related death in this country


Thank you to all our fundraisers!

      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.
