Johnson, ALR Talk Up LA Walk for a Cure

July 10, 2013

The Alliance for Lupus Research, or ALR, is a national organization whose mission is to find better treatments and eventually a cure for lupus. Yet it's had its greatest exposure in the New York area, where Woody Johnson, the Jets chairman and CEO and the founder of the organization, is based and where annual walks have raised much of the funds to battle the silent epidemic.

Efforts to bolster the ALR's presence on both coasts and in between continue. Last month Johnson and Louis Lucido, principal and founding member of DoubleLine, an investment management firm, hosted a low-key, no-media dinner at the City Club in Los Angeles to help broaden public awareness and to develop support for this year's sixth annual Los Angeles Walk With Us to Cure Lupus event in November.

“Lupus is a very complex autoimmune disease that still has no cure and 90 percent of those who have it are women," Johnson said. "The Alliance for Lupus Research is doing everything we possibly can to find a cure by funding the best lupus research money can buy. Our efforts here in Los Angeles are a large part of making our mission a reality.”
