The Lupus Colorado Community Walk is back for a fourth year! The 2018 Walk was a huge success, drawing over 450 participants and raising over $69,000, to benefit lupus families in Colorado. Our goal for the 2019 Walk is $75,000 and 750 participants walking to find a cure and make a difference!
What makes our walk unique:
Every dollar raised at the Lupus Colorado Community walk stays in the State of Colorado to benefit the more than 30,000 Coloradans living with lupus. By participating in the Lupus Colorado Community Walk, you are directly impacting fellow Coloradans living with this debilitating disease.
Our event is more than a walk; it is a celebration for the whole family complete with a DJ, photos, face painting, arts and crafts, yard games, and a crowd favorite, cotton candy.
What’s up this year:
Location – We are excited about our second year in a row at this beautiful location. The Hudson Gardens and Event Center – Garden Canopy, which has ample shade, parking, and a gorgeous walking path offering multiple walk lengths!
Snacks – Instead of food trucks, light morning snacks will be provided free to all participants. In addition, walk participants are encourage to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in the gardens following the walk.
Wellness Village – We will have additional new health-related vendors and information tables for patients and caregivers.
For the safety of all participants and Hudson Garden Rules, no dogs are allowed at the event.
We encourage you to form a team and invite friends and family to join your team and help you FUNdraise. Fundraising incentives will be given for individuals who reach the $500 and $1,000 fundraising milestones. A prize will also be given the Top Fundraising Team and Top Individual Fundraiser.
Show your team spirit as prizes are given for the Best Dressed Team and Most Creative Team name!
Follow us on Facebook for regular updates throughout the spring and summer.
