2013 Walk To End Lupus Now Cleveland/Akron
Saturday, September 28, 2013
Thank you for all your hard work! Becuase of your generous contributions, our Chapter raised over $110,000 to go toward programs of research, education, and advocacy throughout Ohio!
The Walk To End Lupus Now is all about those affected by lupus and their support systems to join together. Why join together? When our lupus community comes together to celebrate the hope of one day finding a cause and a cure we create synergy between all who suffer from lupus.
The walk also generates much needed funds for the Lupus Foundation of America, Greater Ohio Chapter to continue our mission to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through programs of research, education, and advocacy.
If you suffer from lupus, you don't suffer alone. Please join us to receive and share hope with your fellow lupians, to celebrate the successes in your journey with your support system, and to remember those who came before us who have lost the battle.
Join us to share hope for a better tomorrow, a tomorrow free of lupus!

Join the Fight
1. Register - Start a team, join a team, or sign-up as an individual.
2. Set a fundraising goal for yourself, or your team - We suggest $100 minimum for each individual because raising $100 or more earns you a walk t-shirt.
3. Raise money- Set up your personal fundraising page and share your story. People will be more likely to give if they know why you are walking and how important this cause is to you.
4.Spread the word- Tell everyone you know what you are involved in and why, then ask for support. If you don't ask, they can't say yes.
5. Walk- Come together will all people who are supporting this event and celebrate all the hard work in raising essential funds and spreading awareness of lupus.
