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.  There's 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.

Register today and save your spot. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this year's event. Stay connected to local American Lung Association events and LUNG FORCE Detroit activities by joining our local Facebook Group. You can also text “LUNGS” to 313-572-6900.

      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.
