New Statewide Event!
The Lupus Foundation of America and the LFA, Chapter Network are partnering to raise awareness of lupus for a day of national celebration on Saturday, October 10, 2020.
Focusing on underserved areas of Wisconsin, the LFA, WI Chapter will be holding the Virtual Walk to End Lupus Now – Wisconsin Together in addition to our Walk to End Lupus Now events in Madison and Milwaukee.
If you haven't been able to participate in a Walk to End Lupus Now event because there wasn't one in your area, now is your chance!
Register or donate today! Form a team, raise pledges, and plan a celebration for walk day on 10/10/20.
If you are interested in being a Team Captain, know of people or businesses that might be interested in sponsoring, or have any questions, feel free to contact email@example.com.
What does a virtual walk look like?
We may not be able to gather in person, but we can still unite in spirit to raise awareness and celebrate the lupus warriors in our lives.
- Use this experience as an example to others of what it is like to live with a compromised immune system. Sharing your story increases awareness not only of lupus in general but also of the unique struggles faced by individual lupus warriors.
- Earn team medals with 8 team members!
- Collect pledges to earn incentive prizes!
- Facebook donations can be tied to your fundraising page, making it even easier to reach and exceed your fundraising goals.
Encourage people to register
As there is no physical gathering on 10/10/20, registering for the Walk to End Lupus Now - WI Together is show of support of the lupus warrior in your life, and all 30,000 lupus warriors in Wisconsin. Anyone can register and participate, even if they would be unable to attend if this event were held in person. Engage friends, family, and supporters through social media and other forms of communication, no matter where they live!
Make a plan for walk day
Each registered participant will receive a surprise gift via mail. Make a short video of yourself “walking” and showing off your gift. Post it on your social media, and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can make a compilation. Let’s blanket our social media feeds with awareness to show that we are united against lupus.
Gather your team virtually: connect via FaceTime, Google Hangouts, or any other meeting/video conference app. The walk is a celebration of love and support for all lupus warriors. Get creative and find a way to be together from a safe social distance.
Use this opportunity to connect with and include supporters who couldn’t otherwise participate on walk day. Engage friends and family who live in other areas of the country and world. Encourage people who would not normally pre-register because they cannot physically attend on walk day to join your team!
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com or call our office at (414) 443 6400.
Registration will be open online through walk day and donations can be made through November 15th.
