Providing Answers, Support and Hope in North Carolina
This is my chapter   |   


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. Join the Lupus Foundation of America and 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.

Join us this year at our statewide Virtual Walk to End Lupus Now ™. Registration is $10 for those over the age of 12.

Due to the on-going crisis due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and in an abundance of caution for the high-risk population in whom we serve, we have made the decision to host a virtual  Walk to End Lupus Now on Saturday, September 12th, 2020. Registration is still live and fundraising is still available. 

The entire state of North Carolina will be participating in this virtual event, so make sure you have family, friends, & caregivers join your walk team.

Please note that the North Carolina Virtual WTELN will be held on September 12th. On Saturday, October 10th, we will be celebrating participant's fundraising success on the LFANC's Virtual Victory Day. The fundraising deadline for all participants will be on Saturday, October 10th at 11:59 pm.


We are encouraging all walk participants to Walk Their Own Way for the 2020 Virtual Walk to End Lupus Now. Whether you walk BEFORE or AFTER the virtual walk is up to you!

When you are doing your walk, we encourage you to take these steps & let all of your friends know that while things may look different this year, YOU are still Walking to End Lupus!

Here are some suggestions on how to complete your walk:

- Go live on your social media & tag the Lupus Foundation of America, North Carolina Chapter
- Take a picture or video & tag us on social media or email to
- Invite your teammates to walk at the same time as you and get on a group call or FaceTime with everyone, so you can walk your own way, together!
- Walk around your neighborhood or a park in all of your purple (but make sure you are socially distancing from everyone!)
- Get creative! You have the ability to think outside the box and make the most of walking your own way. Each person's walk will look different & that is okay!

During the virtual walk on Saturday, September 12th, there will not be a break time for people to walk. The virtual walk will be a celebration of YOU, all the lupus thrivers participating, supporters, sponsors, fundraising efforts, & more! We encourage all lupus thrivers to Walk Their Own Way before or after the Virtual Walk to End Lupus Now.
