The 15th Annual West Suburban Illinois Lupus Walk
August 14 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
Lupus survivors, their families and friends, and hundreds of supporters, walkers and cheering spectators will join representatives from the LSI during the organization’s 15th Annual Western Suburbs Illinois Lupus Walk. This fun, family-friendly 1 mile or 3-mile walk/run begins at the Naperville Riverwalk in Naperville. Illinois Lupus Walks, the largest gatherings of the lupus community in the area, provide an opportunity for the lupus community to meet and raise awareness about lupus.
Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that causes inflammation, tissue damage, and can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). Lupus is difficult to diagnose and there is no cure to this often-disabling disease.
All registered participants, for the Western Suburban Illinois Lupus Walk, will receive an official Illinois Lupus Walk t-shirt, post-event snack, and more! Adult registration is $25 prior to event; $30 day-site; and $10 for children 12 and under. Participants can walk as individuals or as part of a team. Event activities include music, kids’ face painting, raffle prizes and games. Prizes are given to participants raising $100 and more.
The West Suburban Illinois Lupus Walk benefits LSI’s programs, services, and research to support those affected by lupus.
