ALR Virtual Walk Day December 8, 2012
Walk with Us, America. Join us for the “Walk with U.S., Walk Local Cure Global” virtual fundraising event. The National Virtual Walk Day is Saturday, December 8, 2012. You choose your own walk site, gather your friends and family and walk together to join the fight against lupus. The Virtual Walk doesn’t have to be a Walk. You can create your own Virtual Fundraising Event. Have a party, play basketball, whatever you choose. Know that 100% of every dollar raised from your event will directly support lupus research programs because the ALR board of directors funds all adminstrative and fundraising costs.
