The Lupus Colorado Community Walk is back for a second-straight year! The 2016 Walk was a huge success, drawing over 200 participants and raising nearly $45,000, which was $20,000 over the 2016 goal. THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR PARTICIPANTS, FUNDRAISERS AND DONORS!!!!

Unlike many other walks, EVERY DOLLAR RAISED AT THE LUPUS COLORADO WALK WILL STAY IN THE STATE OF COLORADO TO BENEFIT MORE THAN 30,000 COLORADANS LIVING WITH LUPUS. When you participate in the Lupus Colorado Community Walk, you are directly impacting fellow Coloradans living with this debilitating disease.

We are excited about this year’s new location, Prospect Park in Wheat Ridge, which has ample shade and parking! Our event is more than a walk; it is a celebration for the whole family complete with music, photos, face painting, arts and crafts, yard games including corn hole and horseshoes, cotton candy, and food trucks. In addition, the 2017 walk will include health-related vendors. For the safety of all participants, no dogs are allowed at the event. 

The walk will feature two shaded walk routes this year to accommodate all of our patients.  The main walk route will be 1/2 mile or you can take the shortcut which is 1/4 mile.  Community Walk Route – Final

We encourage you to form a team and invite friends and family to join your team and help you FUNdraise. Fundraising incentives will be given for individuals who reach the $500 and $1,000 fundraising milestones.  A prize will also be given the Top Fundraising Team and Top Individual Fundraiser.
