Thank you for all that you do to support people with lupus and their families! Let's hit our $55,000 goal to mark the 15th Anniversary of the Walk To End Lupus Now in Indianapolis.

Again this year, our Chapter will be having three Walk contests. In addition to incentive prizes, the following walkers will receive a prize:  Top Fundraiser, Team Captain of Top Fundraising Team, and Team Captain of Team with Most Registered Walkers. Winners of the two fundraising contests will be announced after the December 16th incentive cutoff date. Team Captain of Team with Most Registered Walkers will be announced the week after the Walk.
