WALK DAY INFORMATION
REGISTRATION: This year there is a $10 Registration Fee for individuals 13 years and older. Children who are 12 years and younger are free. Scholarships are available for those who cannot afford this fee. If you are not registered before NOON on Friday, May 17th, you will be required to register on-site and pay the registration fee. Visit our walk website to register beforehand.
PARKING: Free parking is available in the designated parking lots of P2 and P3. Unfortunately, due to construction the parking decks are a little bit of a walk to the site. We recommend drivers dropping off walkers on Armory Dr. (off of Kings Dr.) right in front of lot 7 and heading to park in decks 2 & 3. Once parked, make your way towards Belk Plaza. NO street parking is allowed. Handicap parking is available in parking lot 6, across from the site, please have your handicap sticker visible on your dashboard. Please see the parking map below or to download click here.
CHECK-IN: Please look for the "Registration" tent and let us know you have arrived. You MUST come through registration if you are one of the following: 1) a walker that did not register prior to the event or 2) a walker making a donation or turning in funds raised. There is a registration fee of $10 for those who are 13 years and older.
ROUTE: You'll make your way around the CPCC football stadium and the beautiful neighborhood of Elizabeth. You can 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 team members.
TEAM PHOTOS: Will be taken under the Start/Finish 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 weather forecast for Saturday is a hot one!! It's calling for mostly sunny with a high of 91. We suggest bringing sunscreen, a hat, walking shoes, an umbrella for shade coverage, a misting fan, and please drink PLENTY OF WATER before you come. We will have water at the walk, but since we anticipate heat, we want to ensure you're all hydrated.
Participant safety is top priority. In the event of severe weather, cancellations or delay, we will post any weather related news on our website and notify all participants via email and phone.
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. The route this year takes you by the reststop 2x, which allows you to restock on water and snacks.
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, as well as NO PETS.
THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS: The walk would not be possible if it were not for our amazing sponsors. View full sponsor list.
