Event description

Description

Thousands of people living with lung cancer are joined by family, friends and advocates each year to walk, run, and volunteer to raise money and awareness for lifesaving research, education, support, and services.

Very often this disease is considered a "smokers' disease," but this is not the case. Some brief facts about lung cancer:

  • More lives are lost to lung cancer than to colorectal, breast, and prostate cancers combined.
  • Lung cancer has been the leading cancer killer of women since 1987, killing almost twice as many women as breast cancer.

LUNGevity is the nation's leading lung cancer-focused nonprofit.
They are changing outcomes for people with lung cancer through research, education, and support. LUNGevity Foundation was founded in 2001 by seven people who had each had been diagnosed with lung cancer. It was their vision and passion for finding a cure that resulted in LUNGevity’s phenomenal growth.
