HEALTH SAFETY PROTOCOLS AT IN-PERSON WALK WITH US TO CURE LUPUS EVENTS

The health and safety of our lupus community is the Lupus Research Alliance’s (LRA) highest priority. The LRA will follow all state and local mandates regarding COVID-19 health recommendations at our events. Click here to read The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s COVID protocols.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

If you’re not feeling well, or have been recently exposed to COVID-19, we ask that you please stay home to protect participants, volunteers, and staff from potential infection.

We strongly recommend wearing masks at our events to help protect members of our lupus community who are immunocompromised and therefore at a greater risk for COVID-19 infection. We will have masks available on Walk Day for all participants. All Walk Day volunteers will be asked to wear either face shields or masks (which will be available on-site), and all participants should aim to follow social distance protocols where possible. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout our event.

FOOD

For maximum food safety on Walk Day we will have available individual water bottles and light grab & go refreshments.

DONATION DROP OFF

To reduce close contact interactions, please donate online to your individual Walk pages or mail checks to the Lupus Research Alliance office (270 Madison Avenue, Suite 300, New York, NY 10016). If you have cash donations to turn in on Walk Day, please seal them in an envelope with your team’s name and enclose any important acknowledgement information.

GET THE MOST OUT OF NEW YORK WALK DAY!

The day begins with our opening ceremonies. Expect inspiring speakers, a t-shirt contest, and more while you drop off any donations at the Registration tent, pick up your Walk Day incentive t-shirt, and visit our sponsor and activity booths. We’ll have purple beads and ribbon tattoos to get you in the spirit of the day.

FUNDRAISING PERKS:

Every participant that raises $25 or more, will qualify for a purple Lupus Lei. With an attainable milestone like $25, we hope to see hundreds of purple leis on Walk day!

Talk the Walk, Wear the Walk! Participants qualify for a Walk t-shirt when you raise $125. Be sure to mark your t-shirt size when you register. The Lupus Lei and Walk T-Shirt will be available for pick up on Walk Day. One lei and t-shirt per qualified participant, this is a non-cumulative fundraising incentive. Fundraising must be posted to your personal page, or turned in on Walk Day to qualify.
