New York City Walk with Us 2014

Life Without Lupus

The Lupus Research Institute (LRI) is excited to join the Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR) fundraising program Walk with Us to Cure Lupus in New York City to help raise funds for lupus research. We invite all our patients, friends and supporters to walk with Team Life Without Lupus® to broaden what is already an inspiring and successful event.

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. In lupus, the immune system, which is designed to protect against infection, creates antibodies that attack the body’s own tissues and organs -- the kidneys, brain, heart, lungs, blood, skin, and joints.  The need for new treatments and a cure is urgent.

The LRI chose to walk as a team with the ALR because of our shared commitment to prevent, treat and cure lupus. 100% of all funds raised by LRI’s Team Life Without Lupus will go towards lupus research. The LRI and ALR are collaborating on a research initiative to accelerate new lupus treatments with the goal to speed availability of better, safer treatments for lupus patients.

We hope you join Team Life Without Lupus. To join as a walker, please click on "join team" in red below. If you can’t make it to the Walk on October 18th, you can be an important part of the movement as a supporter. To help our team reach our fundraising goal please consider making a general donation by clicking on "LRI Team Donations" in the list of participants below. Or donate to a specific walker by clicking on their name in the list below.


Thank you!
