Join supporters from the entire Texas Gulf Coast region to help the Lupus Foundation of America find a cure for lupus. Our annual Walk to END Lupus Now is a half day of fun with food and activities for the entire family including the family pup!

Why should you participate in the Walk to END Lupus Now & 5K Fun Run?

  • More than 1.5 million Americans have lupus. In Houston, over 30,000 people are living with lupus.
  • The effects on individuals with lupus and their family and friends can be life diminishing, chronic and life-threatening.

Join us and help bring hope to millions of individuals affected by lupus.
