Join us Sunday May 5, 2019 in downtown Houston for The Walk to END Lupus NOW, featuring a Certified 5K Run & Yoga.

Proceeds from this event support programs such as Education and Outreach, Direct Services, Research and overall support of the lupus community in the Texas Gulf Coast Region.

Multiply Your Power

Join supporters from the entire Texas Gulf Coast region to help the Lupus Foundation of America find a cure for lupus. Our annual Walk to END Lupus Now is a half day of fun with food and activities for the entire family including the family pup!

Why should you participate in the Walk to END Lupus Now & 5K Run?

  • More than 1.5 million Americans have lupus. In Houston, over 30,000 people are living with lupus.
  • The effects on individuals with lupus and their family and friends can be life diminishing, chronic and life-threatening.
