LUNG FORCE’s annual Turquoise Takeover celebration (May 9-15) unites America to raise critical awareness of lung cancer, the nation’s #1 cancer killer. Each year, we turn the nation our signature color – turquoise – and tell the stories of those impacted by lung cancer to change the public’s perception about the disease.
Academy Award-winning actress and Advisor to the American Lung Association Board of Directors, Laura Dern, will be kicking off our 2021 LUNG FORCE Walk and Run/Walk season and hosting a team of her own. Join us and raise funds to support lung cancer education, advocacy and research by joining a local LUNG FORCE Walk.
Here’s how you can help:
1. Join a LUNG FORCE Walk
