BE THE CHANGE – Create a personal fundraiser!

Personal fundraising is integral to the success of A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation events. In 2016, individuals like you raised more than $80,000 to support innovative lung cancer research. You have the power to save lives! Please consider fundraising in honor or memory of your loved one, and help us reach our 2017 goal of $90,000 raised through personal fundraising. You can set up your personal and team fundraising pages during the walk/run registration process.
