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
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 Run/Walk Safe Commitment for detailed information. Let’s work together to keep everyone safe!
The registration fee for runners is $25. There is no registration fee for walkers, virtual walkers, or volunteers. 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.
