Event Information

Event Info:

We have marked a paved course about 5k in Downtown Cincinnati at Fountain Square. This year we are encouraging lupus patients to walk with their family and friends. Some people may not be able to walk the full 5k so in addition we are having a 'butterfly stroll'. Which is a stroll through the park, with no marked distance, at your own pace. Wheel chairs and strollers are permitted.


The “Walk To End Lupus Now” is the largest gathering of lupus patients in the Cincinnati. The purpose is to bring together all those affected by lupus to raise the much needed funds to carry out the mission of the Lupus Foundation of America, GOC. Your financial support is needed and so is your presence to help us bring LFA programs and services to Cincinnati while we do research to solve the cruel mystery of lupus.


A minimum of a $20.00 donation for each participant (ages 11+) is required to participate in this event. The minimum donation is set in place to help us defray the expenses of the event. Please do your best to pursue additional fundraising. Thank you for your donations. Remember, it is your financial support that makes it possible for this Foundation to continue.


The “Walk to End Lupus Now” festivities benefits are reserved for those whose financial support makes it possible for the Lupus Foundation of America, GOC to continue its mission.


The “festivities benefits” include Bottled Water, Walk Souvenirs, Refreshments, and Fun Activities.


All children must be registered by their parents in order to participate. Parents of children ages 2-10 may purchase an “Activity Pass” for each child ($5), which will enable the child to receive all the benefits of the festivities.
