Her Father's Fight Propels Lindsay to the Finish Line
With a heavy beat booming through her headphones, Lindsay Condon sets off on another run. After a year on the sidelines with an injured ankle, she welcomes the return to activity. And now, each run is a step forward in her training for the 2020 Chicago Marathon.

For Lindsay, running with our Lung Power Team is about more than just the race. It’s to honor her father, Mike, who is fighting lung cancer ⁠— and to help build a better future for everyone living with lung disease.
