We are Colorado’s only nonprofit to serve individuals
and families with lupus.
Our goal: Improve the quality of life for
all people affected by lupus.
We need your help to continue our mission to create hope and a normalcy for our lupus families, especially during the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our work would not happen without your generous support as expressed by one of our constituents in her recent letter.
“I’m writing to you from a place of fear and really need to see if you can help me. I am at a loss and have run out of any help because everyone else is going through so much, and I don't want to make things harder for others but am so scared.” ·
Because of the numerous volunteers and careful management of your gifts, Lupus Colorado is proud to give 91% of all donations directly to services for lupus families. Through outreach and key partnerships, we work diligently to serve our community. Every dollar is meaningful to our mission.
Our Emergency Assistance provided over $67,000 to local lupus families - paying doctor and dentist bills, buying needed medicines, providing transportation, purchasing groceries, and paying utility bills.
Our education team taught virtual disease self-management classes to lupus patients and their caregivers. This evidence-based curriculum was developed and tested by Stanford Medical Center. This program is providing the tools for improvements in healthy lifestyle, mental health, injury prevention, caregiver support and self-care.
Our leadership successfully advocated for lupus research funding and benefits.
Our virtual support groups provide ongoing education and encouragement to our lupus families.
With the new year, please know your gift and generosity will play an integral role in supporting our mission to empower and care for lupus patients and families as they continue to fight against this incurable disease. Be that guardian angel. Be a part of our journey and invest in Lupus Colorado, as we provide help for today and hope for tomorrow for the individuals and families with lupus.
With a Grateful Heart,
Inez M. Robinson, CEO
P.S. Please let me know if you would like your gift to be designated for a particular purpose that is meaningful to you.

This year, Lupus Colorado is celebrating our 50th anniversary! Join our 2022 Community Walk to provide 50 more years of Help for Today and Hope for Tomorrow!
This year's walk will be better than ever and we are so excited to host our Lupus family LIVE once again!
What makes our walk unique:
Every dollar raised at the Lupus Colorado Community walk stays in the State of Colorado to benefit local families. By participating in this event, you are directly impacting fellow Coloradans living with this debilitating disease. Our event is more than a Walk; it's a celebration for the whole family complete with a DJ, photos, face painting, yard games, Line Dancing and more.
Location and Event Information:
We are excited to bring this year's IN-PERSON walk back to The Hudson Gardens and Event Center - Garden Canopy, which has ample shade, parking, and a gorgeous walking path offering multiple walk lengths! We will have additional new health-related vendors and information tables for patients and caregivers in our awesome Wellness Village. Light morning snacks will be provided free to all participants. In addition, walk participants are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in the Gardens following the walk. For the safety of all participants and Hudson Garden restrictions, no dogs or animals are allowed at the event.
Build Your Team:
We encourage you to 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!

We can’t wait to walk with you!
Lupus is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease that is difficult to diagnose, difficult to manage and, to date, without cure. Even though lupus is more prevalent in this country than AIDS, sickle cell anemia, cerebral palsy and cystic fibrosis, it is the least known of all major diseases.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus and to promote efforts for the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and cure of lupus. Lupus Colorado was established in 1972 for the purpose of providing support, education and training to everyone that is affected by lupus.
