There is no registration fee, but it is a fundraising event. We encourage all participants to fundraise. We offer a number of fundraising tools to help you be a successful fundraiser. Every dollar helps move us closer to a world free of lung cancer and lung disease.
Everyone is welcome to join a LUNG FORCE Walk, regardless of age. However, all children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older. No matter your age, all participants must be registered and can help support our mission by fundraising.
