Virtual LUNGe Forward 5K, Run & Walk


Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 10 for a Celebration of Hope!

Due to the evolving public health risks related to COVID-19 (coronavirus), we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Charlotte LUNGe Forward 5K Run, Walk & Rally originally scheduled for March 28.

While we unfortunately cannot hold our regularly scheduled Charlotte LUNGe Forward 5K in-person, we invite you to LUNGe Forward now through June 1 to show your support virtually. We'll also look forward to seeing all participants for a Post Virtual Walk - Celebration of Hope on October 10 at McAlpine Park. See details below.

During this critical time, people diagnosed with lung cancer and their families need our support more than ever. We hope you will join us in "stepping out" to make a difference!

Registration includes participation in both the Virtual Run/Walk and the Celebration of Hope on October 10. If you are already registered for the LUNGe Forward event, there is no need to register again.

Virtual Run & Walk - Now Through June 1, 2020

  • Participating is easy: Run or walk your own 5K, 1 mile or any distance in your neighborhood, on your treadmill or at your favorite park by June 1, 2020.
