Funding lupus research, awareness and support, stride by stride and side by side. Join the Lupus Foundation of Minnesota (LFM) for our 16th Annual Lupus Walk for Hope and 5K Run – Rochester. LFM has funded lupus research for 40 years, working for four decades in Minnesota to realize our vision of a world without lupus. While working toward finding a cure, we support those impacted by this chronic, autoimmune disease and promote a deeper understanding of the disease.
LFM works to improve the quality of life for people affected by lupus through support, training, education and resource referrals. This annual fundraiser features a 5K RUN ($25; $30 event-day) - open to runners or walkers - as well as an approximately 1-mile WALK ($10; $15 event-day). T-shirts, performance shirts, timed results, refreshments, silent auction, live entertainment, and program emceed by KFAN's Cory Cove. For more information, visit LupusMN.org.
