October is Lupus Awareness month, and the Lupus Alliance of America LI/Q Affiliate which is celebrating its 50th
Anniversary this year, is pleased to announce that the 12th Annual “Walk Along for Lupus” will take place on October
16th, at Eisenhower Park, Field 6, in East Meadow. Registration starts at 8:30am, rain or shine. Over 2000
participants are expected for the 5K walk and for the festivities that include, lunch, clowns, magicians, face painting,
the USA Skateasauras, music and more.
Last year the Walk Along raised over $275,000, 90% of that money was donated by individuals and teams
made up of local families. The “Walk Along for Lupus” is the most successful lupus walk in the country that
not only supports lupus research but also supports the individual with lupus as well.
Over 1.5 million Americans have lupus; someone you know may be among them. Help the Lupus Alliance
continue their tradition of serving those with lupus while searching for a cure, by walking on October 16th. For
