Lupus LA is the first-ever lupus charity team in the LA Marathon. By joining our Team Life without Lupus, you’ll help raise money to provide critical patient services for people with lupus throughout Southern California. Our team provides athletes with an opportunity to make new friends and reach their health and fitness goals while helping others in the community. In exchange for training and support, you help raise money towards critical patient services in the Greater Los Angeles area. You can help families cope with this disease as we work towards a cure.
Lupus LA’s Team Life without Lupus has 25 spots for committed runners and fundraisers. Additionally, those who already have guaranteed entries for the 2010 LA Marathon can also join Team Life without Lupus and receive the same benefits at a lower fundraising commitment.
The New Performance Nutrition 5K run on March 20, 2010 will be the official walk/run of Lupus LA. Any 5K team member who raises over $100 will receive a Team Life without Lupus T-shirt. Team Life without Lupus 5k runners/walkers must contact Elyse Reyes to register for training.
Marathon: Those applying for guaranteed entry with Team Life Without Lupus and training must commit to a fundraising goal of $1000. Those who already have a guaranteed entry spot and would like to join Team Life Without Lupus without training must commit to a fundraising goal of $500. If your fundraising goal is met by January 4, 2010, Lupus LA will also pay for your entry into the marathon.
5K: Those who want to sign up for the New Performance Nutrition 5K Run/Walk are asked to commit to a minimum fundraising goal of $100.
