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.
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. If you’re unable to attend the Walk, please feel free join our Virtual Walk on May 7, 2022, or watch the program afterwards.
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.
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 THE NORTHERN MICHIGAN 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.
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 Walk t-shirt incentive is only available for mailing in the continental United States. Fundraising cut-off date to qualify is Walk Day. Please expect an email in November with a claim form to claim your prize. If you’d like, you can donate your incentive(s) back to the Lupus Research Alliance.
