About Walk with Us to Cure Lupus

2022 marks the 20th anniversary of Walk with Us to Cure Lupus, the Lupus Research Alliance’s signature national fundraising program devoted to finding a cure for lupus.

What began with the very first Walk in Washington, DC in 2002 has grown over the past 20 years to unite tens of thousands from across the country who have raised over $42 million for lupus research. 100% of every dollar raised goes directly to support lupus research programs because the LRA Board of Directors funds all administrative and fundraising costs.

Even through the past two years of change and uncertainty, our Walk community showed their commitment to one goal: supporting lupus research that will unravel the complexity of this debilitating disease so treatment and a cure can be targeted to each person.

2022 will be more memorable than ever as friends, families and co-workers come together to share their stories and their spirit while raising funds for lupus research.

Register for a Walk:

If you don’t see a Walk in your area, join the 2022 Virtual Walk on May 7! Last year we created the world’s largest lupus Walk experience, and we have plans to make this year’s Virtual Walk even more memorable!
