The American Lung Association of Tennessee is holding its Lung Force Walk this weekend.
The walk will be held on Saturday, at 9 a.m. at Public Square Park.
Research shows every 3.5 minutes, one woman in the U.S. is diagnosed with lung cancer and a woman dies of lung cancer every eight minutes.
Abby Williams with the American Lung Association talked to News 2’s Nikki Burdine and Neil Orne about the importance of raising awareness.
“This campaign is to raise awareness as much as possible so that we can reach those people when they are in Stage I or Stage II and they can get the help that they need,” said Williams.
Beyond Wings Circus will also be at the event tomorrow.
You can register onsite at 8:30 a.m. or online at lungforcenashville.org.
