CHEST Events App Game: Click Game

To participate, simply log in and earn your challenge badges by submitting photos to your profile. As you complete each challenge throughout the duration of CHEST 2017, your badges will accumulate, and we will award sweet treats to the person(s) with the highest number of badges on the last day of the annual meeting. Winners can stop by the press room, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Room 706, to collect prizes on Wednesday, November 1, by 2:00 PM local time.
