About the Program

Team Make your Mark is a way for novice or experienced athletes to combine running, walking, triathlon events or a week long physical challenge with fundraising to support lupus research and education programs. By joining Team Make Your Mark, you gain access to professional coaching, team gear, and everything you need to cross the finish line - in-person or virtually. 

Choose Your Own Race

The Choose Your Own Race option of Team Make Your Mark™ is a way to take an event/ race you're already participating in or a goal you've been striving to achieve, while making your miles matter in the fight against lupus. There is no fundraising minimum commitment for this option. However, when you raise at least $500, you will begin to earn team gear including a Team Make Your Mark race jersey and finisher pin.

The Virtual 6 Challenge

It takes an average of 6 years for someone to receive a correct diagnosis of lupus from when they first notice symptoms. Together, we can take steps to change this. Over a period of 6 days, you can join us as we come together virtually to complete 6 miles in 6 days, however and wherever you choose. Run, bike, hike, swim, paddle, walk - indoors or outside. The $36 registration fee covers sign up swag and a medal. Fundraising is optional. Learn more about the Virtual 6 Challenge HERE.
