Lung Cancer Initiative appreciates the severity of COVID-19. As we are dedicated to serving the needs of people with lung cancer and their loved ones, we are closely monitoring the latest developments related to the outbreak and responding accordingly. We will follow all guidelines from the CDC and local officials as it pertains to mass gatherings and social distancing. Event changes will be posted on the homepage of this website and sent to registered participants.

Join us for the Triad LUNGe Forward 5K Run, Walk & Celebration! Although this year's event may look a little differently, our committment to the lung cancer community remains unchanged.  There are so many ways for you to show your support!  Whether you attend in-person at Center City Park, are an online attendee walking in your neighborhood, or choose to lounge for lung cancer, you can make a difference.   

The Triad LUNGe Forward 5K Run, Walk, & Celebration will be a day remembrance, as well as a day to take action and provide hope to those impacted by lung cancer. However you choose to participate, your support will make an impact in the fight against lung cancer
