Team Life Without Lupus Takes on the LA Marathon

In late March, over 50 runners and walkers took to the streets of Los Angeles as the LA Marathon’s first official lupus charity team. Team Life Without Lupus spent five months training under the guidance of Club 26.2 in preparation for the March 20 5K kick-off at Dodger Stadium and the March 21 premiere of the marathon’s new “Stadium to Sea” route.

Team Life Without Lupus raised over $57,000—and counting!—to fund patient programs and research grants. Special thanks to our top five fundraisers: Kim Fertman, Linda David, Bridget Hood, Dan Smith, and Shante Broadus.

“It was a great experience to be part of the 5K....And what made it even more enjoyable was the fact that I got to interact with different people all working towards a common goal: a cure.” — Eilish Morales
