Team Lupus LA has participated in the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon and LA Big 5K for the past six years. We are proud to be a part of such a special community event, as we work together to find a cure and increase awareness for lupus. Members of Team Lupus LA FUNdraise to help lupus patients in need, with the proceeds going towards our Emergency Grant Program, patient services, local fellowships, and research for a cure.
By being a member of Team Lupus LA, you will have access to fundraising tips, the chance to win special prizes, and can participate in special team events prior to race day, including a pre-race pasta dinner. Each team member will receive a Team Lupus LA t-shirt, and a Team Lupus LA Swag Bag, filled with lots of goodies for race day!
Last year we raised over $95,000, and it was because of all of our amazing team members. If you have been on our team before, we hope you will run again, and get your friends to join in. If you are hearing about Team Lupus LA for the first time, please consider joining us.
If you are not be able to run or walk in the events, we encourage you to ask your friends and family to participate on your behalf. You will be surprised at how much your friends and family want to support the cause that is so important to you.
Consider creating your own team! FUNdraising and spreading awareness is always better together.
