Signing up for a Run/Walk near you is simple! Click the following links to register online as an individual, team captain, team member or volunteer.

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.

Every participant who raises a minimum of $100 will receive a commemorative t-shirt. For more motivated fundraisers, there are additional rewards that you can work toward. Take a peek at the fundraising incentives.


Corporations, businesses, friends, families, and other organizations can form teams. To form a team, choose Register as a team captain when registering. Make sure you have a team name in mind. After you register as a Team Captain, tell your team members to select Register as a team member and search for your team name to join.

Make sure you know the team name of the team you wish to join. When you register, select Register as a team member and search for your team name to join.

Team captains rally friends, family and co-workers to form a team and fundraise for the LUNG FORCE Run/Walk. Register as a team captain today.

Run/Walk Day Information

Weekly challenges will be issued to complete before the next week’s challenge. Participants who complete all the weekly challenges, will be entered to win an amazing prize! Some challenges are cumulative, in order to be completed by the end of the challenge. Please be sure to check your E-mail, our YouTube Channel, and/or our South Central LUNG FORCE Run/Walk Facebook Group, to stay updated on the challenges and how to complete them.

For those who complete all 6 challenges, those participants will be entered to win a grand prize, at the end of the event. Winners will be announced on social media and via email.​

​ Participants who complete the Marathon and/or 100 Mile challenge, will receive a LF Run/Walk Medal!

The LUNG FORCE Virtual Run/Walk is a fundraising event and just like at our in-person Run/Walk, we encourage all participants to raise funds. While there is no minimum fundraising requirement to participate, your fundraising is more important than ever.

No! While there are a couple grand prizes up for grabs for those who complete all challenges, you can still qualify for the prize for the challenge you participate in. The more who participate in ANY challenge, the merrier.

You can sign up and participate in ALL four of our challenges at any point between May 1st and May 31st . While we will release the challenges weekly to keep everyone excited while spreading the fun out, you can do the challenges as quickly or slowly as works for you! We need your submissions by June 1st so we can pick winners and assemble the submissions into a highlight reel!

Be sure to download your LUNG FORCE Walk App, join the Facebook Group, and follow the YouTube Channel . Then, tune into one of our social channels on May 1st, to see a special announcement from your American Lung Association team!

Anyone can join in on our virtual fun, not just Ohio residents. However, we do ask that each participant register online to participate in our challenges. You will only be eligible for prizes and receive updated challenge information and the Zoom celebration invite if you are registered for our Virtual Run/Walk.

We are here to be creative and recognize that with everyone social distancing, an in person team kick-off may not be feasible. However, we are willing to host a Zoom Happy Hour just for your team to review the challenges and assist in creating some team fun. If you’re interested in scheduling a Team Happy Hour, reach out to Brittany!
