About the PFF Walk

Together toward a cure for pulmonary fibrosis.

The PFF Walk unites all impacted by pulmonary fibrosis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and provides a special opportunity to raise funds, build awareness, and make a meaningful impact on those affected by the disease. You have the power to create a world without pulmonary fibrosis!

 Funds raised by the PFF Walk support our efforts to accelerate research, to advance improved care for those living with the disease, and to provide unequaled support and education resources for the PF community. Whether you live with PF, have received a lung transplant, or are a caregiver, family member, friend, or healthcare professional, the PFF Walk celebrates you and your work toward our collective goal: a cure for pulmonary fibrosis.

About the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation

At the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, we are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of those affected by pulmonary fibrosis (PF), a form of interstitial lung disease (ILD). Pulmonary fibrosis is a process that causes lung scarring, in which fibrotic tissue blocks the movement of oxygen from inside the tiny air sacs in the lungs into the bloodstream. Low oxygen levels, and the stiff scar tissue itself, can cause people with pulmonary fibrosis to feel short of breath, particularly when walking and exercising. Over 250,000 Americans are living with PF today. Approximately 50,000 new cases are diagnosed each year and as many as 40,000 Americans die from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) each year.

As the largest organization committed to raising awareness and providing support, our mission is to accelerate the development of new treatments and ultimately a cure for pulmonary fibrosis. Until this goal is achieved, the PFF is committed to advancing improved care of patients with PF and providing unequaled support and education resources for patients, caregivers, family members, and healthcare providers.
