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 the Detroit Zoo between 7:30 - 9:15 AM so that you can check-in or get registered and ready for your walk. You must be checked in by 9:15 AM in order to enter the zoo on event day. This will give you time to explore our Mission Village, get stamps for our LUNG FORCE Action Passport, explore our exciting activities areas, and/or socialize before the Walk launches off at 10:00 AM!

LUNG FORCE Walks are a great time to meet other people living with 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.

In support of our annual fundraising event and the American Lung Association’s mission, there is a suggest fundraising minimum of $100 per person. Register today to save your spot. Registration will close when we hit our capacity limits.

LUNG FORCE Action Passport

Visit our Mission Village to learn more about our mission and earn yourself a stamps at each Sponsor and Exhibitor table. All participants who complete their LUNG FORCE Action Passport by collecting all stamps will be eligible to win a prize!

Mission Village will be booming with life this year, complete with a DJ, event day activities, LUNG FORCE Hero recognition, event day Merch sales, and more.

Mission Mile Markers

Remember or honor a loved one who’s life has been affected by lung cancer or lung disease, by purchasing a sign that will be displayed on the walk route. Signs can be purchased during registration or by contacting your local office.


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 Erica Murray.
