About The Walk
Walk to End Lupus Now ™ events provide people affected by lupus and/or their families the opportunity to come together for one unified purpose — TO END LUPUS.

Their overall goal is to raise money for lupus research, increased awareness of lupus, and to rally public support for the estimated 1.5 million Americans who suffer from its brutal impact.
