Meet Our Partner: CVS Health
In 2014, CVS Health became the first national pharmacy retailer to take tobacco off the shelves of its CVS Pharmacy® locations—part of their commitment to helping people on their path to better health. One of the American Lung Association's strategic imperatives is to eliminate tobacco use and tobacco-related diseases. Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of women and men—and, together, CVS Health and the American Lung Association have worked to raise awareness of this serious lung disease through LUNG FORCE.
National Presenting Sponsor
As a National Presenting Sponsor of LUNG FORCE since its inception in 2014, CVS Health has supported the consumer awareness program through an annual in-store fundraising campaign. During the campaign, CVS Pharmacy® customers are able to support LUNG FORCE when they donate $1, $3 or more at the register with all proceeds supporting the movement. In addition, CVS Health has engaged colleagues in LUNG FORCE Walks across the country to help raise awareness and funds for the initiative. From May 6 - 26, 2018, CVS Pharmacy® will also donate $1 to LUNG FORCE for every pack of EXTRA® Gum purchased at CVS Pharmacy® locations and CVS.com, up to a maximum donation of $100,000, to raise funds for lung cancer awareness, education and research. (Purchase is not tax deductible.)
