Mission Statement

We are the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health & preventing lung disease.


The American Lung Association is saving lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease. We were founded over 115 years ago by a group of volunteers dedicated to ending the lung health threat at the time: tuberculosis. With TB largely controlled in the United States, we have extended that mission to other respiratory diseases. And thanks to our donors, volunteers, program and event participants, and staff, we are America's trusted source for lung health education, lung disease research, support, programs, services and advocacy.

Fun event for a great cause. Participants ran in support of a loved one or a friend that is living with or has lived with lung disease. Other climbers were there to promote lung health and advocate for active lifestyles. The event was engaging and rewarding. Being able to volunteer with the American Lung Association in Fenway Park was an exciting opportunity.
