Help Solve the Cruel Mystery of Lupus

America’s largest lupus walk program takes place at Liberty Park on May 2, 2015.  The Lupus Foundation of America, Utah Chapter, Inc. will host the 2015 Annual Walk To End Lupus Now

The Walk To End Lupus Now events are held in more than 60 cities accross the country, making it the largest lupus walk program in the entire country.  The Walk events bring together community members, people with lupus, friends, families, health care providers, celebrities and other stakeholders to raise money for lupus research and education programs, increase awareness of the disease, and rally public support for those who feel the brutal impact of lupus. 

"Lupus is a significant concern in the state of Utah, " explains Noelle Reymond, President/CEO of the Utah Chapter.  "Of the estimated 17,000 lupus patients in Utah, more than 20% look to us for support and resources." 

We need more awareness of lupus and we need more resources for research to continue efforts to find a cure for this terrible disease.

Registration for the Walk will be open online in early January 2015.  Participants can also create a personal fundraising page on the Walk website to raise money, recruit new team members, and get valuable fundraising tips. The Lupus Foundation of America, Utah Chapter has many programs that take place throughout the area.
