First-Ever Lupus Charity Team Races for a Cure in the ING New York City Marathon

On November 1st, our 25 Team Life Without Lupus runners joined nearly 40,000 participants in the world’s most famous marathon, trekking 26.2 miles through New York City’s five boroughs—and they all made it across the finish line in Central Park!

Our runners helped make a real contribution to the fight against lupus, raising awareness—and nearly $100,000 for groundbreaking lupus research. 

Help get lupus to the finish line!
We’re just a few dollars short of our goal. Help the race for a cure by making a donation here.

Did you hear the great news?

There’s been another successful Phase III clinical trial for the proposed lupus drug, Benlysta™, which means there may soon be a new FDA-approved drug for lupus—the first in 50 years!
