You can choose from a variety of events that appeal to a full range of interests and physical abilities. And you can team up, and participate with friends, family, coworkers and even participate in honor of a loved one.

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. Our LUNG FORCE Walks bring together those impacted by lung cancer and other lung disease as well as their families, friends and coworkers, to raise funds toward research and program services. These events provide an opportunity to connect with other families and celebrate hope and progress in the fight against lung cancer and for lung health.
