Oregon Walk to End Lupus Now™  2015


Lupus Foundation of America, Pacific Northwest Chapter

Walk to End Lupus Now™

"The Power is Mine"

Oregon, September 26, 2015 Portland Water Front - Portland

The Walk to End Lupus Now™ is conducted nationwide by the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) and its national network to raise money for lupus research, increase awareness of lupus, and rally public support for those who navigate life with this devastating disease. Each year, thousands of people across the country join forces with the LFA and walk to improve the quality of life for all those affected by lupus.

Lupus is one of the cruelest, most mysterious diseases on earth--it strikes without warning, has unpredictable, sometimes fatal effects, lasts a lifetime, and has no known cause and no known cure. It is more pervasive than people think, and impacts people on a scale that the public does not realize. People like you are now becoming aware of how urgently resources are needed to fight lupus, and to help those who suffer from it. By joining forces with us, we will not have to concede victory to this terrible disease. With your help, we will be able to solve the cruel mystery of lupus in our lifetime, and end its destructive impact upon millions of lives.










When you take part in a Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus NowTM event, you experience firsthand the power of the movement to end lupus. The Lupus Foundation of America is the only national force devoted to solving the mystery of lupus, while giving caring support to those who suffer from its brutal impact. Register to walk and unleash your power by raising funds for lupus research and local support services, while increasing awareness and public support for those who suffer from lupus.
