National Walk Day

National Walk Day
Saturday, September 28, 2024



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. Bring the spirit of the PFF Walk to your own community. Start your day with an inspiring Mission Moment from the PFF and then gather your family and friends for a walk at the location of your choosing. Join us as we walk together toward a cure for pulmonary fibrosis!

Register for yourself or start a team today! Registration is free and participants who raise $100 or more will receive our 2024 commemorative t-shirt.

Mission Moment

As part of the Opening Ceremony video, National Walk Day includes a special experience that unites and recognizes all who have been affected by pulmonary fibrosis. The Mission Moment is an interactive opportunity where each participant strikes the lung pose (pictured right). This symbolic gesture unites all members of the PF community emphasizing the Foundation’s goal to raise awareness, fund research, and provide vital support for patients and their families.

Whether you live with PF, have received a lung transplant, or are a caregiver, family member, friend, or healthcare professional, the PFF Walk, and our Mission Moment celebrates you and your work toward our collective goal: a cure for pulmonary fibrosis.

Send us your lung pose picture to be featured in our National Walk Day Opening Ceremony video! Click here to submit your photo.

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.
