I raised $500, why don't 5 of my teammates receive t-shirts?

Fundraising is individual. If you raise $500 under your name or on your fundraising page, the funds are attributed to you. On our list at registration, it will show us that you raised $500, and you will be given a Walk To End Lupus Now lawnchair. If your teammates did not fundraise under their own names and are not bringing money to the walk, it will show us that their fundraising amount is $0, and they will not be eligible for walk day incentives, including food.

If you have accidentally attributed funds incorrectly online (ex. all of your teammates gave their money to you, and you entered it all under your name), call the office ASAP at 1(888) NO-LUPUS. We do not have the ability to correct this mistake at the walk, but if you call us beforehand, we can help you fix the problem.

When is the walk?

September 28. Check-in is from 1:00pm-2:30pm. The walk ceremony will commence at 2:30pm, and the physical walk will begin after the ceremony at about 3:00pm.

Where is the walk?

The walk is at the Brecksville Reservation in the Oak Grove pavillion. However, parking at the pavillion is limited to Walk VIPs and cars with handicap stickers. Everyone else should park in the designated parking lots.

Where should I park?

Limited arking at the pavillion is available for Walk VIPs and cars with handicap stickers. All other participants should park at the AT&T lot or the Brecksville Municipal parking lot. Shuttles will transport you to the pavillion. Please leave yourself extra time to park and wait for the shuttle. Also, be aware that you may be redirected to the opposite lot if the lot you arrive at is full.

How far is the walk?

It is a 5K (about 3.1 miles).

What if I cannot walk the full route?

Our President and CEO, Suzanne, will be leading a stroll around the pavillion for lupus aptients and other supporters who are not able to complete the full 5K.

How do I skip check-in?

To skip check-in, come to early check-in/drop-off days. You can come to our office at any point in the 2 weeks prior to the walk during business hours or Saturday, September 21 between 10:00am and 4:00pm.

Bring your and/or your teammates' cash and check donations and we will give you everything you would receive at check-in. Then, as long as you wear the purple wristband we give you, you will not have to wait in the check-in lines.
