The American Lung Association
Mission: The American Lung Association is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease, through research, education and advocacy. Their work is focused on five strategic imperatives: to defeat lung cancer; to improve the air we breathe; to reduce the burden of lung disease on individuals and their families; to eliminate tobacco use and tobacco-related diseases; and to monitor and enhance organizational effectiveness.
Other Ways to Get Involved:
They are primarily looking for volunteers to help support their events. This can include registering participants, handing out t-shirts, food and beverage distribution, set up/tear down, way point guides, or even just being a cheerleader! A few upcoming fundraising events include:
Climb for Clean Air Mountain Summit Event
Ride Around the Sound Bike Event
LUNG FORCE Walk
