About the Program

Team Make your Mark is a way to combine running or walking with fundraising to help solve the cruel mystery of lupus. This program gives both novice and experienced runners/walkers the opportunity to get involved supporting the fight against lupus. Team Make Your Mark is focused on 5k, 10k, half marathon and full marathon distances. There are two ways to participate: you can join an official team event, or do your own thing and sign up for the race of your choice.

Team Events

We participate in two to three team events per year. In 2019 these events are the Rock 'N' Roll San Diego Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K (June 1-2, 2019) and the Rock 'N' Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon, 7.6K and 5K (September 15, 2019).

When participants achieve their fundraising minimum for a team event ($1250 for marathon and half marathon, $750 for 7.6K and $500 for 5K), they will receive:

  • Event/race registration
  • Pre-race inspiration party
  • Fundraising and training guides
  • Professional coaching and gear
  • Inclusion in a national community

Choose Your Own Events

You can also fight lupus and receive support while doing any event of your choosing. If you choose to go the Choose Your Own route, you will have no fundraising minimum commitment. However, when you raise at least $500, you will begin to earn team gear and access to professional coaching and support. If you have another race in mind or would rather fundraise via triathlon, a cycling event, or summiting a mountain, the sky's the limit through our DIY peer-to-peer fundraising platform.

If you are interested in joining us for a Choose Your Own Rock ’n’ Roll race, choose any non -team Rock ‘n’ Roll race around the country, run any distance you would like and receive free race registration, coaching and gear with a fundraising minimum of $500.
