We're still talking about Lupus.  

In the past year 16,000 people were diagnosed with lupus. Women, especially women of color, are disproportionately affected by lupus.  They continue to experience the effects of their lupus from heart, lung or brain involvement to sun-induced rashes, and chronic muscle and joint pain.  Current treatments only manage symptoms and try to interrupt the body's inflammatory processes...

                         but no cure...      yet.  


Will you help us raise funds and awareness at the 26th annual Lupus Loop?  Please join over 4,000 participants on Sunday, October 29 in Fairmount Park.

Proceeds from the Annual Lupus Loop 5K Run and 2.5 Mile Walk to End Lupus Now® benefit the support programs and services of the Lupus Foundation of America, Philadelphia Tri-State Chapter that help the more than 40,000 individuals living with the challenges of lupus in the Tri-State area. You will make a difference in the continued effort to find the causes of and cure for lupus through locally funded research and advocacy efforts.

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). This disease can cause inflammation and tissue damage to virtually any organ system. Lupus is a disease of flares and remission – making life with lupus very unpredictable. It strikes mostly women of childbearing age; although women of all ages, as well as men and children, develop lupus. It is a life-threatening, life-diminishing disease.
