Gator Steps for Lung Disease 5K event

April 6 @ 7:30 am - 11:00 am

Please join us for our inaugural Gator Steps for Lung Disease benefiting the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine. This 5K walk/run aims to expedite research that could help with understanding various lung diseases and development of treatments as well as patient education.

The University of Florida Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine and Fowler Lung Foundation are thrilled to collaborate and host this event. We hope our community will join us on April 6th, 2024, from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., at the UF Cancer & Genetics Research Complex.

Gator Steps for Lung Disease will include a wide range of activities for friends and families. This event is FREE to attend though there is a small fee to participate in the 5K. Online registration for the event is open until midnight April 5th and then Same-Day registration will be available starting at 7:30am on the morning of the event. Those who cannot run or walk a 5K are still encouraged to attend the community event. There will be speakers and local organizations/vendors that are free and available to everyone.

All proceeds from this event support patients and their families undergoing treatment for pulmonary fibrosis and sarcoidosis at UF Health.

United States Marathon Olympian and UF Athletic Hall of Fame inductee Keith Brantly is generously joining us to run and support the lung disease cause. To read more about the “Gator Great,” click here.
