Team Life Without Lupus® Joins ALR in NYC Walk with Us to Cure Lupus 2014
With over 100 supporters, LRI’s Team Life Without Lupus® proudly helped the Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR) meet an ambitious fundraising goal of $1 million for lupus research at the Walk with Us to Cure Lupus in New York City. 100% of funds raised by Team Life Without Lupus will go specifically to a joint LRI/ALR research initiative to accelerate new lupus treatments with the goal to speed the availability of better, safer treatments for lupus patients.
“The LRI’s participation in the ALR Walk tangibly affirms the power of partnership to deliver on our mutual mission of advancing lupus research,” commented LRI President and CEO Margaret Dowd. “It was very exciting to see the NY metro lupus community united today as we walk together for better treatments and a cure.”
