Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now is America’s largest lupus walk program with thousands of walkers in nearly 70 cities across the nation to raise money for lupus research, increase awareness of lupus, and rally public support for the estimated 1.5 million Americans who suffer from its brutal impact.
Yes, all Walkers should register to participate in the event. Click here to get started.
There are no fees; however, this is our largest fundraiser and it is the celebration of what each supporter has raised/donated. We encourage every Walker to raise at least $100 to support the Foundation’s mission.
All individual Walkers who raise $100 or more by September 1, 2023, will receive your t-shirt at the Walk. If you raise $100 or more after September 1, we will receive your t-shirt in the mail.Earned prizes and incentives will be mailed to you in approximately 30-45 days after the Walk. Check back to see the full list of prizes and incentives.
(Once again, this is based on individual fundraising and not collective team fundraising.)
Approximately 4 weeks post event, certificates for all incentives will be emailed from WalkToEndLupusNow@lupus.org (please add to your address book to ensure you receive it). Once you select your incentive item, it will be shipped to you. The Lupus Foundation of America reserves the right to substitute an incentive item of equal or greater value. Full list of prizes TBD.
We have extended the fundraising timeline and are now allowing donations made up to 4 weeks after the Walk to qualify for one of our prizes. Incentive items are not cumulative (One prize item only. T-shirts and Trailblazer medals are in adition to incentive prizes). Fundraisers may select one item at or below the level achieved. Matching gifts are included in fundraising totals if the fundraiser provides the appropriate matching gift form when turning in the eligible donation.
By raising funds for Walk to End Lupus Now, you are helping us fulfill our vision of a world free of lupus through lupus research, education and advocacy programs to help improve the lives of all people impacted by lupus.
