Unite. Celebrate. Walk

Join us for the third annual PFF Walk in Chicago, New York City, Washington, D.C. and new in 2019, Dallas!

The PFF Walk offers an inclusive opportunity for those who have been touched by pulmonary fibrosis to unite in the search for a cure, share their stories, celebrate their loved ones, and walk together with our community of patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, and friends. Funds raised through the PFF Walk program support vital research and sustain patient initiatives that help those living with the disease and their families live better lives.

Ways to Get Involved

Walk with us: Join a team, create a team or sign up individually at one of our four walk sites across the country. Registration is free and those who raise $100 will receive our commemorative walk t-shirt.

Participate Virtually: Can't make it to one of our walks? No problem! The virtual walk is an opportunity for you to fundraise, interact with the PF community across the globe, and bring awareness to your community. Walk with us at a park  in your neighborhood on the day of one of our walks or  on another day that's convenient for you!  You will receive a guide on how to engage with us on social media to join in on the fun!

Community Walk: A community walk is a great way to get your hometown involved and expand PFF's footprint across the nation. Community walks normally take more planning and preparation than participating as a virtual walker but, provide an opportunity for you to host your own event, take charge and lead the way in your neighborhood!

If you're interested in hosting a walk, fill out this form and a member of our team will be in touch with you soon! Or contact Jackie at 312.224.4667 or jwilliams@pulmonaryfibrosis.org

Volunteer: The success of the PFF Walk would not be possible without the generosity of volunteers who give their time and talents on the day of the walk. For more information on roles or to sign-up, please click on the walk-site you’re interested in: Chicago, Dallas, New York City, Washington, D.C.
