Walk Your Way

It's Your Walk. Your Way.

Looking for a different challenge?

Walk Your Way is the perfect adventure for walkers not able to participate in person. Choose a personal challenge for you, whether that be walking or running outside in a nearby park, or hiking your favorite trail. It's jumping rope or jumping jacks. It’s your challenge, your way.

As a Walk Your Way participant, you and your team are an important part of the LUNG FORCE movement. No matter when, how or where you participate, you will be active alongside a large community helping those impacted by lung cancer and lung disease. Let's start moving!
