Why We Walk

We walk for people. For patients and their loved ones. For colleagues and neighbors. For everyone affected by lung disease. We walk because together we can defeat lung cancer and lung disease one step at a time.

What is a LUNG FORCE Hero?

LUNG FORCE Heroes are people living with lung cancer or lung disease. Our Heroes share their powerful journeys — stories which help educate the public about what it's like to have lung cancer or lung disease.

What is a LUNG FORCE Champion?

LUNG FORCE Champions are caregivers, family, friends and co-workers of those who are impacted by lung cancer or lung disease.

Heroes and Champions may also be asked to speak at a LUNG FORCE Walk Kick-off event, Corporate Recruitment event and/or on Walk day.

If you're interested in learning more, please contact Emily Amitin for more information. We also invite you to Share Your Voice and read about others’ experiences too. Everyone's story is unique, and we appreciate you getting involved!
