A special Lung Force loop option - a shorter walking route for those with breathing difficulties - was available for participants joining the effort.
This year's event was expected to feature family fun activities with live music, guest appearances by some of the public's favorite Star Wars characters and a fun-filled kids zone.
A Lung Force hero meet and greet was also held.
The event kicked off at 7:30 a.m. and was expected to conclude with an opportunity drawing and silent auction at 10:25 a.m.
