Where – Essex Park, Rochester, MN
Funding research and support, stride by stride and side by side. Join the Lupus Foundation of Minnesota for our 16th Annual Lupus Walk for Hope and 5K Run – Rochester.
The Lupus Foundation of Minnesota (LFM) has funded lupus research for 40 years, working for four decades in Minnesota to realize our vision of a world without lupus. While working toward finding a cure, we support those impacted by this chronic, autoimmune disease and promote a deeper understanding of the disease.
5K RUN: (3.1 mile)
The 5K is open to walkers or runners and will take you through woodlands, around streams, and through beautiful Essex Park on a combination of paved and turf trails. Although this is a non-competitive 5K (and not a certified distance), a timing clock will be available to you onsite.
Registered participants receive a premier race shirt and race bib.
LUPUS WALK FOR HOPE:
Designed for people of all ages and abilities, the walk is approximately one mile. A shorter, gentler trail of paved paths will guide you through beautiful woods and along the waters of the beautiful park. The walk is not timed. All registered participants will receive a 2016 Walk for Hope t-shirt.
