Lupus Foundation of America is "Walking" into the Twin Cities

Join the Lupus Foundation of American as it launches its inaugural Walk for Lupus Now event in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Sunday, June 21, 2009. As you know, it is estimated that 1.5 million Americans have a form of lupus, and 14,250 of them live in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

Come together with other families touched by lupus for a fun, inspiring and hope-filled morning at Lake Calhoun.
