12:00 Noon – 2 p.m.
Imagine a disease that can hurt any part of your body, like your joints, heart, kidneys. Your immune system becomes so hyperactive that it attacks, instead of protects.
You don’t look sick, so no one knows you feel awful. Or maybe you know someone who has it.
Join us for Lupus Research Alliance’s virtual “ManyOne Can” Walk on Oct. 22 at noon to help us fight lupus.
No one can cure it alone, but ManyOne can.
WCBS/WLNY are proud media partners for the event.
The Lupus Research Alliance is the largest nongovernmental, nonprofit funder of lupus research worldwide. The organization aims to transform treatment while advancing toward a cure by funding the most innovative lupus research; fostering diverse scientific talent; stimulating collaborations; and driving discovery toward better diagnostics, improved treatments and, ultimately, a cure for lupus.
Because the Lupus Research Alliance’s Board of Directors funds all administrative and fundraising costs, 100 percent of all donations from the public, and the proceeds of its signature grassroots fundraising program, “Walk with Us to Cure Lupus,” to go directly to support research programs.
Millions worldwide have lupus, which affects mostly women during their childbearing years, though men and children can have the disease as well. Lupus is three times more common in African-American women than in Caucasian women and is more prevalent in women of Latino, Asian, and Native American descent.
