Walk to End Lupus Now™ events provide all people affected by lupus and their families the opportunity to come together for one unified purpose — to end lupus.
The Lupus Foundation of America brings together thousands of walkers in nearly 60 cities across the nation to raise money for lupus research, increase awareness of lupus, and rally public support for the estimated 1.5 million Americans who suffer from its brutal impact.
About the Lupus Foundation of America
The Lupus Foundation of America is the only national force devoted to solving the mystery of lupus, one of the world’s cruelest, most unpredictable and devastating diseases, while giving caring support to those who suffer from its devastation. Through a comprehensive program of research, education, and advocacy, we lead the fight to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus.

• Lead special research initiatives, fund innovative studies, and advocate for increased public and private investment in lupus research to advance the science and medicine of lupus.
• Translate research findings into useful programs, information, and tools for people with lupus and ensure health professionals know about new means to diagnose and manage the disease.
• Conduct outreach efforts to increase public understanding of lupus and share stories of those who suffer from the disease to rally public support to join the fight to end lupus.
• Provide caring support to people with lupus, their families and their caregivers and help guide them through the complexities of living with lupus.
