WNY Lupus Walk 2018

Not all heroes live in a galaxy far, far away

A fundraising event for Lupus Alliance of Upstate New York

Event Information

Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 9:00am - 12:00pm

About the Walk

Not all heroes wear capes or ride white horses. Many fight an invisible war with a disease that’s adept at eluding diagnosis and has no cure. They fight an enemy that affects more people than multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, cerebral palsy and AIDS--combined. It robs them of their health, family celebrations, career opportunities, and dreams.
 
The enemy is lupus and those in the fight need our help. Will you be the hero they need?
 
By walking in or donating to LUPUS WALK 2018, you can provide the kind of support that saves lives. The funds raised on September 22nd will help pay for New Patient Orientations, Lupus Education and Advocacy Network (L.E.A.N. FORWARD) meetings, medical information, and life-enhancing resources, provided free of charge, to those in Western New York who fight this war every day.
 
Please join this fight for the family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors who have no choice. You will have fun, you will provide hope, and you will be a hero. Capes are optional (but strongly encouraged).
