The Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now™ event in Indianapolis each year helps us take steps to raise money for lupus research and education programs while increasing awareness of lupus and rallying public support for those who suffer from it.
In 2014, in celebration for the 8th year of the walk, Heartland Endurance Sports has partnered with the Walk to End Lupus Now™ event to bring you a chip-timed, 5K competitive race as part of the event. Bring the family for a great race and stay for the 8th Annual Walk to End Lupus Now™ at 11:00 am, with food and festivities afterwards!
Register early! We are limiting the field on the 5k race this year to the first 1000 entries! For best prices, register before March 1.
