Day of Event Information

You’ve trained and raised funds, and now the big day has finally arrived! Don’t miss a moment of the fun. Arrive at your event by 9:00 AM so that you can check-in or get registered and ready for your walk.

LUNG FORCE Walks are a great time to meet other people battling lung disease, which is why participants who have a personal connection are encouraged to identify themselves at registration. If you are comfortable, you will be asked to join as a new LUNG FORCE Hero and will have the opportunity to share your story.

Walk Day Schedule:

  • 9:00 AM (ET): Check-in Opens & Visiting Vendors
  • 9:40 AM (ET): Opening Ceremony Begins
  • 10:00 AM (ET): Ribbon Cutting & Walk Begins (View Route Map)
  • 11:00 AM (ET): Closing Ceremony Begins

Spirit Poms

At registration, you will be given a Spirit Pom to wave with pride as you walk. In this small, spirited way, we can recognize loved ones who are currently struggling with lung disease as well as those we have lost.


LUNG FORCE Heroes are patients, caregivers, family, friends and co-workers of those who are impacted by lung cancer or lung disease. These brave individuals share their powerful real-life stories online and at events to help raise awareness and educate the public about what it’s like to live with lung cancer or lung disease. If you're interested in becoming a LUNG FORCE Hero, please contact Janeene Catalano.
