We are excited to be participating as a team in the NYC Walk with Us to Cure Lupus!
Hi everyone, thanks for visitng the Maddy's Marchers Team Page! This is our 11th year walking and fundraising for the Alliance for Lupus Research. We're so proud of all that we've accomplished as a team so far, and we're excited to continue that success for the 2016 Walk.
As some of you may know, I started working for the Alliance for Lupus Research this year. I work with the Walk Department. Though I won't be able to walk with my team this year, I'll be all over the walk, ensuring that the day is as smooth as ever. I'll see everyone at lunch!
Walk with Us to Cure Lupus is the Alliance for Lupus Research’s (ALR) signature national fundraising program. As a team, friends, family and colleagues come together to raise awareness of lupus and funds for lupus research.
Lupus is a devastating autoimmune disease that affects an estimated 1.5 million Americans, making the disease more common than leukemia, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and cystic fibrosis. The exact cause of lupus is unknown and there is no known cure.
We chose to walk as a team with ALR because of its commitment to prevent, treat and cure lupus. Since 1999, the ALR has committed over $100-million to lupus research, making it the largest private funder of lupus research in the world.
We’d love for you to join our team, but if you can’t make it to the Walk on October 15th, you can still be a part of the movement. To support our team’s fundraising efforts click on one of our names below to make a donation. 100% of your donation will go to support lupus research programs, because the ALR Board of Directors funds all fundraising and administrative costs.
