_M349728 (1224 x 816)Lupus is a chronic, life-threatening autoimmune disease. In lupus, a person’s immune system loses the ability to differentiate between foreign bodies and healthy tissue, causing the body to attack itself. It is estimated that 1.5 million Americans have lupus. The cause of lupus is not known and there is no cure – yet. Your sponsorship of the 24th Annual Walk-Along for Lupus will help us to continue improving the lives of those living with lupus through awareness, education, support services and research.

For over 50 years the Lupus Alliance of LI/Q has been the only Lupus agency serving the Long Island/Queens area. Every dollar raised at the Walk-Along for Lupus directly helps someone living with the disease in our local community. As the only lupus walk on Long Island that raises funds for both research and support program, your support of the walk as a sponsor will show your patrons you care about them and their quality of life.
