Join us in the fresh air for this year’s LUNG FORCE Walk.

We're coming together safely and responsibly to make a difference in the lives of people with lung cancer and lung disease. Now more than ever, we need you with us.

There's never been a more urgent demand for our services, as we work to advance lifesaving research and preventative health initiatives, like the COVID-19 vaccine.

Register today and save your spot at the LUNG FORCE Walk - Providence on June 12, 2021 at 9:00 AM (ET). When you make a self-donation of $33 or more, you will receive an official American Lung Association Sports Scarf.

Your participation will turn small steps into great strides toward a future free of lung cancer and lung disease.

A link to the screening will be live on the event website and sent via text on Friday. Proof of completion will be required to enter the event. You are encouraged to use a cell phone to take the online screening, and take a screenshot of your passing results. Note: adult guardians can take the screening on behalf of minor participants.
