6th Annual GOFoundation Portland

THANK YOU to everyone who came out on June 20, 2020!


Break out the tunes and break down barriers as you '5K Your Way' for lung cancer! On Saturday, June 20, we will band together with two other communities whose in-person events were also canceled due to the Coronavirus: Sacramento, CA and Dallas, TX. 

GO2 Foundation was LIVE at 9:00 AM PDT on Saturday, June 20



Together, we can increase lung cancer survival by raising even more awareness and funding for cutting-edge lung cancer research, critical patient support services and direct federal advocacy through the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer. We are not going to let the virus stop us from changing the future for all those affected by lung cancer. We are stronger together!

THANK YOU for helping us reach ALL 50 STATES!
