And you can team up, and participate with friends, family, coworkers and even participate in honor of a loved one.

LUNG FORCE Walk participants smilingLast year was a big year for Lung Association events

Through our signature Fight for Air Climbs and LUNG FORCE Walks, our treks, galas and golf outings, you can show your support and make a real difference. This past year, our 51,000 Walk and Climb event participants raised more than $11.6 million to support our life-changing, lifesaving work.

Special Events Impact

Thank You – You Make It All Possible!Did you know that some of our most active Fight For Air Climb participants are firefighters? We want to thank these brave firefighters and all the many participants, leadership committee members and event day volunteers who continue to support our critical mission through one or more of our special events. Their dedication and generosity improve the lives of the millions who fight for every breath because of lung disease.
Do It For Someone You LoveMany of our event participants and volunteers help in honor of a loved one who they lost, or who is currently battling lung disease. A memorial gift is also a special way to honor someone dear to you while supporting the fight against lung disease.
