A Grateful Message to the ALR Family of Supporters

All of the many accomplishments of 2013 would not have been possible without the generous support of the ALR’s great friends. In fact, they are the driving force behind the ALR’s funding of the world’s most promising lupus research.

  • The ALR is grateful to each of the researchers who worked tirelessly and collaboratively with the funds they received in 2013 to advance the understanding of lupus and lay the groundwork for progress in new therapies.

  • Thanks to every person across the country for helping our Walk with Us to Cure Lupus  program to raise awareness and almost $3 million in funds for lupus research.
    Your strong commitment to our mission made it possible for the New York, Atlanta, Boston and South Florida walks to celebrate their 10-year anniversaries in 2013.

  • And last but certainly not least, many thanks go to all our loyal donors who remain with us, year after year. We acknowledge that your generosity was essential to each of the advancements made by the ALR.

Thank you for a great 2013. We look forward to working beside you once more in 2014!

In gratitude,

The ALR Staff
