tampa start 2023

Thank you, Tampa!

Congratulations on an amazing event. We hope you had an empowering evening full of support and fun. The event raised nearly $90,000 to help move the mission of the Lupus Foundation of Ameria, Southeast Region. There were over 700 walkers. If each participant were to help move us closer to our goal of $100,000 by donating $5 or $10, we could get there. Thank you.

You still have until December 11th to continue to reach your fundraising goals and receive additional great prizes. Check them out!

Another way to reach your fundraising goal is to see if your employer or your donor's employer matches gifts. Use this search tool to see if your company will double your donation! Then reach out to your HR department or community relations team for more information on how to apply.

Event photos will be shared on the Walk to End Lupus Now Tampa Facebook page soon.

We'd love to hear from you. We strive to put on a great event for you. Please fill out the event survey to share your experience and feedback for future walks. Thank you.

A special thanks to those who helped make the event a huge success!
