Virtual Walk

 

For those unable to join us in New York City, Chicago, or Washington, D.C., a virtual opportunity is available! This is a chance to create a team, and invite your colleagues, patients & friends and walk together in your community.  

 

How to Be a Virtual Walker

1. Register today by clicking the "Register for this Event" button on the right-hand side. You'll then have the option to create a team, join a team or start an individual fundraising page.

2. Start fundraising! Customize your walk page and share why you are walking for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. Ask your friends to support you by making a donation to your page or joining your team! Don't forget, those who raise $100 or more will receive our signature PFF walk t-shirt!

3. Interact with us on social media during our Chicago walk on September 15th or Washington, D.C. walk on October 14th! 

Celebrate your fundraising success by walking with your team in a nearby park, forest preserve, or even around the block on a day of your choice!

Click here for a guide on how to register.

 

Social Media Guide

By interacting with us on social media, you can join in on the fun with the pulmonary fibrosis community across the globe. We'll be live streaming the speaking programs and will be posting event highlights throughout the day from the Chicago walk on September 15th and the Washington, D.C. walk on October 14th. 

Use #PFFWalk to send us your photos, share where you're walking and join in on the conversation!
