Support NYC Marathon Runners Pounding the Pavement for Lupus Research

Meet Team Life Without Lupus - 12 runners will take to the streets in the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon Sunday, November 6th to raise funds to benefit the Lupus Research Alliance! They are running for their moms, wives, patients to advance the research that will bring much-needed new treatments and ultimately a cure. One young woman is running for her own Life Without Lupus and to help the millions of others impacted by the disease worldwide.

How can you support these dedicated dozen? Donate to help them reach their fundraising goal. And gather to cheer them on along the 26.2 mile course through the 5 boroughs.
