Shoe News — ALR Walk Update

Walk with Us to Cure Lupus is ALR's signature fundraising program, bringing together thousands of walkers and hundreds of volunteers in more than 25 communities across the country to raise dollars for lupus research.

Fifteen ALR Walks have already been held this year, with 14 more planned for the fall. Spring ALR Walks have raised over $1.3 million for research! If you've participated in an ALR Walk this year, thank you. If not, we hope you will be able to join us soon in taking steps toward a cure for lupus.
