LUNGe Forward Events

Each year LCI hosts three regional LUNGe Forward events, located in the Triangle (Raleigh/Durham/ Chapel Hill), Triad (Greensboro/Winston-Salem), and Charlotte. These walk/run events provide a day of hope, survivor celebration, remembrance of those lost, as well as an opportunity to take action for those impacted by lung cancer.

Proceeds benefit LCI and the lung cancer survivors, caregivers, health care providers and researchers we serve.


This day’s events include a walk/run (may vary in distance by location), celebration rally, a kids’ zone, refreshments, snacks and a variety of activities for the entire family. We invite you to join with community leaders and individuals in participating in this event. There are several ways to get involved with our LUNGe Forward walk/runs and support LCI!
