The 2018 Charlotte Walk to End Lupus Now is this Saturday! Can you believe it's already here?! IT'S GOING TO BE A POWERFUL DAY IN THE FIGHT AGAINST LUPUS! We have already raised $79,000 which is over 60% of our $130,000 Goal. Currently we have 835 walkers registered. If every walker secured a gift, or multiple gifts, totaling $65 we would exceed our goal by walk day.
Wouldn't it be great to hit $130K BEFORE walk day? We can do this!
For those of you who have not registered, there's still time. On-line registration will close at 12:00 PM on Friday afternoon. If you miss the cut off, you can still register on-site at the Walk on Saturday.

ROUTE: You'll make your way around the beautiful CPCC campus and streets surrounding uptown Charlotte. Enjoy the entire 1.25 mile route together with your friends, family, and teammates. Here is the link to the Route Map. Feel free to make copies and distribute to your members. FYI: PLEASE REMAIN ON THE SIDEWALKS. We do NOT have a permit to walk in the streets.
TEAM PHOTOS: Will be taken under the Start Line Arch before the walk begins; gather up your team and stop by for your picture.
WEATHER: Walk to End Lupus Now is a RAIN or SHINE event. Lupus doesn't take a day off, so neither can we. The current weather forecast for Saturday is cloudy, with a high near 84. As we said, our walk is a rain or shine event, so watch the forecast and dress and accordingly.
BRING A PICNIC: There will be hydration and finish line snacks provided, but if you are looking for more of a meal, we encourage you and your team to pack a picnic and stay for the Finish Line Celebration.
WHAT YOU CAN BRING: You are welcome to bring your lawn chairs, folding tables, blankets, and coolers to enjoy an empowering day of hope, passion, and entertainment.
WHAT NOT TO BRING: CPCC does not allow the use of personal tents or on-site cooking equipment at the walk due to fire/safety hazards.
THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS: The walk would not be possible if it were not for our amazing sponsors. View full sponsor list.
