The PFF Walk unites the community in raising funds and awareness for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. Join us as we walk together toward a cure!
Held at North Shore Riverfront Park, the PFF Walk - Pittsburgh offers two course options – 1-mile or 5K – along a gorgeous waterfront pathway with spectacular views of the downtown skyline. After the Walk, we invite you to stay for a celebration with family-friendly activities and light refreshments.
Register for yourself or start a team today! Registration is free.
Commemorative T-shirt and Incentive Program
As a thank you for raising funds and awareness, all registered Walkers can earn PFF-branded items! After individual fundraising is tallied post-Walk, participants will receive information about their gift level and how to redeem their item.
Besides the Walk t-shirt, all items will be shipped and gifts are not cumulative. One item per participant. All Walkers who raise at least $100 before the Walk will qualify to receive the official PFF Walk t-shirt and can pick it up at registration.
We are grateful for your fundraising efforts and hope you enjoy these items year-around to raise awareness! Thank you.
Please note: Thank you gifts are determined by individual fundraising totals. All PFF Walk participants who register and raise funds are eligible to redeem a gift from their highest level achieved (or under). Team fundraising totals and non-registered donors do not qualify for this program. The PFF reserves the right to substitute a gift of equal or greater value or to change the gifts at any time.
