Build a team, raise funds and lead the way towards a world without pulmonary fibrosis with us on Saturday, September 9th in Chicago, IL or virtually.
Patients, families, caregivers, and friends are invited to join for a one- or three-mile walk on the city’s magnificent lakefront in the historic Lincoln Park neighborhood. The PFF walk offers an unprecedented opportunity to unite the community and provide a platform to share your story with others who have been affected by pulmonary fibrosis.
We are so excited to have walkers from 35 states and 3 countries joining us! Whether you are walking with us virtually, or here in Chicago, we cannot wait to walk together on September 9th! You can see if your state is represented in the map below:
