LUNG FORCE is the American Lung Association's annual 5K which provides critical funds for lifesaving research, early detection initiatives, and awareness outreach to vulnerable communities. LUNG FORCE celebrates the power to bring about positive change in the fight to end lung cancer and lighten the burden for people living with lung disease. Join us and turn small steps into bold strides toward a world without lung cancer and lung disease!

Volunteers will be assigned to a task/location for the duration of the event such as cheer teams, water stations, entry and exit liaisons, registration, start and finish line directors, welcome teams, etc. Additionally, volunteers will be provided a t-shirt and refreshments during their shift.

We hope you'll join us for this one-of-a-kind fundraising event! Feel free to share this information with anyone who may be interested in volunteering alongside you on Saturday, May 13th. For questions and more information, please call Maya Puthukkudy at 407-205-1822 or email Maya.Puthukkudy@lung.org.
