About

Turn Orlando Turquoise! The American Lung Association Central Florida LUNG FORCE initiative is looking for diverse leaders interested in making a strong and meaningful impact to join the 2017 LUNG FORCE Cabinet. Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of both women and men in America, and yet, it is not easily identified as such by the general public. LUNG FORCE was created in 2014 to unite and mobilize women against lung cancer. LUNG FORCE has three priorities:

  • To make lung cancer a cause people care about and act on.

  • To educate and empower patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers.

  • To raise critical funds for lung cancer research.

The LUNG FORCE 2017 Cabinet will be responsible for planning and executing the following:

  • LUNG FORCE Run/Walk: Saturday, May 6 th, 2017 at Baldwin Park’s Harbor View - a 5K run and walk event bringing LUNG FORCE Heroes, corporate teams, friends, and families together to celebrate the movement.

  • National Women’s Lung Health Week & Turquoise Takever: Monday, May 8 th- Friday, May 12 th, 2017 - the local arm of the LUNG FORCE Campaign involving several areas of public awareness and raising funds, including:

    • Engaging local media and public officials to wear turquoise in honor of LUNG FORCE

    • Securing speaking opportunities (television, radio, print, presentations) to help raise the awareness of this important issue

    • Engage local businesses to become involved in the turquoise movement (host a give back night, featuring a turquoise item, etc).

Meetings occur the 2 nd Tuesday of the month, 12-1pm with lunch provided for in-person meetings.

The American Lung Association is seeking creative and passionate individuals who are looking for a chance to make a difference in the community! For more information, contact the American Lung Association at 407-425-5864 or email Diana at Centralvolunteer@lungse.org. Let’s make lung cancer a cause people care about
