One hundred percent of proceeds from the walkathon, which is expected to raise $500,000, will be used to fund medical research to prevent, treat and eventually cure lupus, a potentially fatal autoimmune disease that strikes predominantly young women.
The 5K (3.1 miles) walk begins at 10:00 a.m. and will be held rain or shine. There will be refreshments and entertainment along with Generation Jets Fest for all participants. For more information or to make a donation, log on to http://walk.lupusresearch.org.
