Learn About the Walk

Walk a Block for Lupus started in 2001 with the participation of the provincial lupus organizations across Canada. In 2015, it became the Walk for Lupus Ontario. Over the years, the Walk for Lupus has raised over a million dollars to fund the Lupus Ontario Geoff Carr Research Fellowship, support and education programs for lupus patients and their families and advocacy projects aimed at improving programs and services for lupus patients.

Lupus is an autoimmune disease where the body attacks itself causing inflammation, pain, and possible organ damage. Five million people suffer from lupus globally and there is currently no cure. Nine out of ten lupus patients are women, usually diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 45. Each year as we gather for the Walk for Lupus Ontario, we create awareness of this life altering and sometimes fatal disease. By discussing and fundraising for lupus research, Lupus Ontario hopes to someday find a way to live a Life Without Lupus.

Lupus Ontario is not funded by the government and depends on the generosity of individuals like yourself. Your support will help continue to fund lupus research and help spread the much-needed awareness for this debilitating, under-recognized disease.

With your help, we are sure to meet our goal of raising $100,000.
