To ensure the safety of our immune-compromised participants and volunteers, masks are required for all Lung Association event participants, volunteers and staff in official event spaces when in close contact with others. Masks may be pulled down while walking/running. Please wear your mask as you enter the event and while in proximity to other attendees to protect the health of others.

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

With safety being our number one priority, we will continue to monitor current CDC guidelines as well as local guidelines. Our Run/Walk Safe Commitment, includes spatial distancing, health screenings, sanitation protocols, and face masks. See our Run/Walk Safe Commitment for additional information.
