Walk with Us to Cure Lupus Program

The Lupus Research Alliance’s signature national fundraising program Walk with Us to Cure Lupus (Walk) began in 2002 with its first Walk in Washington, DC. Today, tens of thousands of volunteers from across the country have joined the LRA’s quest to find a cure for lupus. Friends, families and co-workers share their stories and their spirit, while raising funds for lupus research. To date, the Walk with Us to Cure Lupus program has raised nearly $39 million for lupus research. 100% of all the money raised through the Walk program goes directly to support lupus research programs, because the LRA Board of Directors funds all administrative and fundraising costs.

For 2020, the LRA is reimagining the Walk celebration to help ensure everyone’s safety during the COVID-19 circumstances. Using the latest technology to simulate a live Walk event, we will feature inspirational speakers and interactive activities to celebrate on one day, as one community, behind one goal: to support lupus research programs that will unravel the complexity of this debilitating disease affecting people in many different ways. No one individual can do it alone — but ManyOne Can!

We hope you will join the ManyOne Can. Walk with Us to Cure Lupus event along with your friends, family members, co-workers and the entire lupus community. Walk wherever and whenever you like to raise funds, and come together on September 12th to applaud everyone’s success.

The first steps start with you!
