Lace-Up for Lungs:
Join Us and Support COPD Awareness

Lace-Up For Lungs

Join the COPD Foundation's Lace-Up for Lungs COPD Awareness month campaign this November. This year, the Foundation's COPD Awareness theme is Lace-Up for Lungs: Let's Outpace COPD. We're committed to innovative approaches to raising awareness for COPD and encouraging early diagnosis.

Lace-Up for Lungs highlights the need for better breathing & lung health, exercise & activity, and quality of life & caring for those impacted by COPD. This year, we're encouraging our Lace-Up for Lungs advocates to share messages about getting diagnosed early. Your participation can help others learn about COPD and the ongoing need for research, education, support, and ultimately a cure for COPD, bronchiectasis, and nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) lung disease.

Alone we are one voice, but together, we are the COPD community and champions on a mission to raise awareness. Read on to discover how you can join Lace-Up for Lungs!
