Hike Virtual Walkers


Can't Attend Hike? Be a Virtual Walker!

This is the perfect option if you are participating in a pulmonary rehab/support group, want to complete the distance over an extended period of time, live out of town or aren't able to travel to Chicago on September 17 for the Hike event.

Registration for Virtual Walkers is just $15 each. Every registered participant receives the official Hike event t-shirt, mailed to your address approximately two to three weeks prior to the event.

Once you are registered as a Virtual Walker, you will have access to a personal Hike for Lung Health fundraising page that you can customize and use to send emails to share Hike information with others and solicit donations.

Are You a PR Rehab/Support Group Leader? Form a Virtual Hike Team.

Pulmonary rehab/support groups across Illinois get involved in Hike for Lung Health each year by forming "virtual" walk teams. Groups have incorporated Hike for Lung Health into their scheduled rehab sessions as a new challenge and motivation for their patients.

As a PR leader you can be as creative as you wish with your team. Ideas from other rehab groups have included:

  • Group competitions
  • Themed teams
  • Small motivational prizes
  • Celebratory completion lunches or parties
  • Themed bulletin boards that track 1 mile or 3 mile progress
  • Scheduled visits from RHA.

We supply event t-shirts and other items to get your pulmonary rehab group in the Hike spirit.
