Walk Day Information

As your Trusted Champion of Lung Health, we have also committed to fulfilling our promise of responsible recreation.

With safety being our number one priority, we are continuing to monitor current CDC guidelines as well as state/local guidelines.

The safest environment for gathering is outside in the fresh air, and to create that safe environment, we will be:

  • Spatial distancing and wearing masks
  • Controlling flow and number of people on-site
  • Following strict site sanitation protocols throughout the day

We are requiring that all participants and volunteers wear a mask while attending the event. Masks will be required at all times at the event. See our Event Safe Commitment for detailed information. Let’s work together to keep everyone safe!

Our promotional photography comes from prior year (pre-COVID) events.

We have two options available: a one-mile route and a 5k route. Staff and signage will be present day of to help guide walkers.

Please arrive by 9:30 AM.

The LUNG FORCE Walk will go on rain or shine! In the case of inclement weather, your local event staff will notify participants of alternate plans.

Parking is available at Manhattanville College. Details will be sent to participants the week of the Walk.

No. Though we love our furry friends, they can cause a respiratory emergency in some participants. So, we ask that you leave your pets at home so everyone can enjoy the Walk comfortably.
