Lupus Walk for Hope and 5K Run – Duluth

Date: Saturday, October 15, 2016
Time: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Location: Lakewalk, beginning at The Sports Garden Bar & Grill, Duluth
Category: Fundraisers

Funding research and support, stride by stride and side by side. Join the Lupus Foundation of Minnesota for our sixth annual Lupus Walk for Hope and 5K Run – Duluth.

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 timed run or walk)

The 5K is open to walkers or runners and will take you along the beautiful shoreline of Lake Superior on the paved Lakewalk of Duluth. Although this is a non-competitive 5K (and not a certified distance), times will be available to you onsite.

Registered participants receive a premier race shirt, race bib and timed results.


Designed for people of all ages and abilities, the walk is approximately one mile. A shorter route of paved paths will guide you in a loop route along one of the U.S.’s Great Lakes. The walk is not timed. All registered participants will receive a 2016 Walk for Hope t-shirt.
