Today, the American Lung Association announced that it will host its LUNG FORCE Run/Walk in Louisville in Paristown on June 4.
WHAT: The LUNG FORCE Run/Walk is a fundraising event that consists of walking a mile long treasure hunt in Paristown. Walkers will begin in separate waves to ensure social distancing. Runners, however, will participate virtually in a location and distance of their choosing.
WHEN: June 4, 5pm – 8pm
WHERE: Paristown, Louisville
WHO: Anyone can participate! We invite individuals, families, groups of friends, and corporate teams to the 2021 Louisville LUNG FORCE Run/Walk. The organization is also offering a “Walk Your Way” option for those who can’t attend the in-person event.
WHY: Money raised at the LUNG FORCE Run/Walk will fund the Lung Association’s efforts to end lung disease. It will also support the Lung Association’s COVID-19 Action Initiative, a $25 million investment to address COVID-19 and protect against future respiratory virus pandemics. The initiative works with public and private entities to increase research collaboration and develop new vaccines, detection tests and treatment therapies.
REGISTRATION: Adult registration for the LUNG FORCE Run/Walk is $38, child registration is $10. All participants are encouraged to raise funds. Registrants who make a self-donation of $33 will earn an official Lung Association Sports Scarf. For more information, and to register, visit LUNGFORCE.org/Louisville.
SAFETY: Masks will be required at the event and social distancing will be practiced. The safety of participants, staff and volunteers is always our number one priority, so we are continually monitoring local conditions that might affect the event. Everyone is encouraged to check our event website for the most up-to-date information leading up to the event.
