The third Annual LUNG FORCE Walk in Boston presented by Lahey Health will be attended by nearly 500 people and is expected to raise over $100,000. The 2.5 mile walk around Boston Common will be kicked off by a welcome program, honoring local LUNG FORCE Heroes, survivors, advocates and families. The family friendly event features a "Walkers Village" which includes interactive educational tents, exhibitors, music, entertainment, and fun for the whole family (well behaved, leashed pets included).
The American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE movement is recognized nationwide and includes 43 walks in 28 states in 2017 alone. LUNG FORCE events raise funds for research, early detection, advocacy, education and awareness for lung cancer, particularly awareness about the high rate of lung cancer in women.
Participation is free. However, LUNG FORCE Walk is a fundraising event and all participants are encouraged to raise donations to support research, early detection, advocacy, education and awareness for lung cancer. Participants who raise $100 or more will receive a commemorative t-shirt.
