The World Conference on Lung Cancer’s annual wellness challenge, Step It Up for Research, returns this year with some twists to add to the fun and competition.
Step It Up for Research is a 4-day walk-a-thon and activity challenge. Join the fun and your steps will earn you points, which may earn you prizes and bragging rights among your peers. All participants will be added to a team, which are determined by each participant’s home region.
In addition to encouraging the physical and mental well-being of WCLC 2023 attendees, the challenge also supports the IASLC Foundation, which provides grants for research, education, and other scientific initiatives. Step It Up for Research is complimentary for all in-person WCLC attendees. The challenge begins at 08:00 SGT on Saturday, September 9, and ends at 17:00 SGT on Tuesday, September 12.
