LUNG FORCE Heroes and Champions

LUNG FORCE Walks are a great time to meet other people impacted by lung disease.

LUNG FORCE Heroes are people living with or a survivor of lung disease.

LUNG FORCE Champions are caregivers, family, friends, and co-workers who know or have lost someone to lung disease.

Our Heroes and Champions can share their powerful voices on our website! These real-life stories help raise awareness and educate the public about what it’s like to have lung cancer or lung disease. Heroes may be asked to share their story at a LUNG FORCE Walk Kickoff event, Corporate Recruitment event and/or on Walk Day.

If you're interested in becoming a LUNG FORCE Hero, please contact Gabby Grimaldi.

VIPs are a club of individual walkers who raise $500 or more to make an even bigger difference in the lives of people impacted by lung disease. Learn more about our Fundraising Clubs.
