The Walk to End Lupus Now is the Lupus Foundation of America’s largest fundraising event. It brings people from across the country together for one unified purpose – to end lupus. Your fundraising dollars will help us raise awareness of lupus, provide vital programs, support, and assistance to people living with lupus, and fund research to unlock the mysteries of lupus and improve the quality of life for those living with this devastating disease.
The Lupus Foundation of America
The Lupus Foundation of America is the only national force devoted to solving the mystery of lupus, one of the world’s cruelest, most unpredictable and devastating diseases, while giving caring support to those who suffer from its brutal impact. Through a comprehensive program of research, education, and advocacy, we lead the fight to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus.
Programs, Support and Help in the Heartland
The funds raised by the Heartland Walk to End Lupus Now are used to fund local programs and services, provided free of charge by the Heartland Chapter, including support groups, lupus education, information and resources, a lupus assistance fund for patients in financial need, and a summer camp for girls with lupus and young women’s retreat.
Fund Lupus Research
Throughout our 40+ year history, the Lupus Foundation of America has made pioneering contributions toward ending the brutal impact of this misunderstood and unpredictable disease. Your fundraising dollars will help move our work forward in leading scientific initiatives, funding lupus investigators, and advocating to increase public and private investment into lupus research.
