  • FY15 Annual Report Special Events

Are you the type of person who prefers to get out and do something about the things you care about? Then let's get moving! Our special events provide an opportunity for participants to show their support of our mission in a meaningful and proactive way. Through our signature Fight for Air Climbs and Lung Force Walks, our treks, galas and golf outings, over 70,000 of our friends and family walked, ran, climbed, biked, golfed or dined, for those who live with lung disease. Even more importantly, those participants raised nearly $18 million to support our life-changing, life-saving work.

On behalf of all those who struggle to breathe because of lung disease, we thank 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. Together, we are heightening awareness about life threatening lung disease and raising much-needed support for research, advocacy and educational services provided by the American Lung Association.

Join us this year to have fun and fight lung disease.

Share inspiration and hope at your local LUNG FORCE Walk.

Step up to the challenge at the Fight For Air Climb.
