“The Walk to End Lupus Now means coming together with my family and friends to show that none of us are in this fight alone. I’m proud to stand beside my fellow lupus warriors as we raise awareness and fundraise for this cause that is so important to so many of us.”
FUNDRAISE FOR A CURE

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“I walk for all the people who have Lupus. I have seen such vast improvements in treatments over the last 30 years. So I walk, because I am hopeful that raising money and awareness will find a cure.”
“I walk for my two girls. Because if I somehow genetically passed this along to them, I want there to be a cure that allows them to continue to live life exactly how they choose – without limits.”
“I went two years with joint pain, fatigue, and inflammation before a doctor could figure out what was happening. I still don’t know how I got this disorder. No one in my immediate family has lupus, which is why I decided to help raise funds to go towards research in finding as much as possible about this and hopefully find a cure one day.”
