The Lupus Foundation of America is joining forces like never before! We are bringing people together from coast to coast to WALK YOUR WAY! 

Lace up your shoes and walk wherever you are and whenever you like – in your neighborhood, at the park, at the gym, or around the block. Every step and every dollar you raise supports local programs and services and brings us one step closer to a cure. 

Three states – one walk! From Kansas to Illinois, anyone can join the Heartland Walk to End Lupus Now and raise funds to support our local programs and services. We are all walking and fundraising together in the Heartland!
