Survivors, caregivers, friends, family, medical staff, and other supporters gathered during Free to Breathe Walk weekend, Sept. 30 – Oct. 1, 2023, to raise awareness and funds for lung cancer research.

LCRF held in-person Free to Breathe Walks in Chicago and Kansas City, making memories and meeting others whose lives have been changed because of lung cancer. Around the nation (and even world), others joined the Free to Breathe Anywhere Walk, doing their part in their own neighborhoods. The Free to Breathe Anywhere Walk is underway through the end of the year – participants can walk whenever and wherever they would like. Walkers are still accepting donations, too!
