The Walk to End Lupus Now events are conducted nationwide by the Lupus Foundation of America and its national network to raise money for lupus research, increase awareness of lupus, and rally public support for those who suffer from its brutal impact. Walk with hundreds of people across Connecticut to join forces with the Lupus Foundation of America and walk with one unified purpose - to end lupus. Walk to End Lupus Now events are non-competitive and anyone can participate. Corporations, families, organizations and school groups build teams of fundraising participants. Participants raise funds by asking friends, relatives, and co-workers to donate to their fundraising efforts. Participants come together on Walk day to celebrate their fundraising success and meet others who are also going through their lupus journey.
