Grand Marshals Denise and Dwane Hall, along with Walk Chair Amanda Lanyzs, invite you to bring your family and friends and tell your co-workers about LUPUS WALK 2019. Exciting new features, same great cause!

Located at Canalside Buffalo, this year’s walk features three great bands; basket, gift certificate and 50/50 raffles; food and loads of family fun. The walk itself is a 1.7 mile stroll from the Canalside boardwalk, through Naval & Serviceman’s Park, down to the Inner Harbor tower and back.

Register online by July 31st and you will receive a free LUPUS WALK 2019 t-shirt.* Order the size you want in your online registration. All T-shirts are men's sizes.

*Sorry, only online adult registrations received by July 31st are eligible for the free t-shirt. 

There's more!

Thinking of starting a team? Register your team online by July 17 and you and a guest will be invited to the first-ever Team Captain’s Kickoff Party! Details will be sent directly to you. The Lupus Alliance of Upstate New York will help you make this your best walk yet! In addition, all teams of five or more that register before September 13th will receive a free team sign, a gift from Mr. & Mrs. Husung (Team: Love for Lisa).

LUPUS WALK 2019 is so much more than a walk. It’s the gathering of great neighbors committed to building healthier, stronger, happier communities and we’ll be celebrating our heroes, our helpers and our sponsors throughout the morning and into the early afternoon. Just look at the entertainment line-up!

  • Skiffle Minstrels (9:45 am to 10:30 am) 
    Swing Buffalo dancers will be there to teach simple steps and lead the pre-walk warm up!
  • Twang Gang (11:15 am to noon)
  • Prize drawings
  • Randle and the Late Night Scandals (12:30 pm to 1:15 pm)

Funds raised by this walk will provide programs and support for those affected by lupus and related autoimmune diseases throughout Western New York.

Thank you for being the neighbor we need!
