The 15th Annual West Suburban Illinois
An estimated 65,000 Illinois residents struggle with the unpredictable, often disabling, and life-altering impact of lupus.
WHAT: Lupus survivors, their families and friends, and hundreds of supporters, walkers, and cheering spectators will join representatives from the LSI during the organization's 15th Annual Western Suburbs Illinois Lupus Walk. This fun, family-friendly 1 mile or 3-mile walk/run begins at the Naperville Riverwalk in Naperville. Illinois Lupus Walks, the largest gatherings of the lupus community in the area, provide an opportunity for the lupus community to meet and raise awareness about lupus.
Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that causes inflammation, tissue damage, and can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). Lupus is difficult to diagnose and there is no cure for this often-disabling disease.

Ninety percent of people with lupus are women and minorities are two to three times more likely to acquire the disease, however; anyone at any age can get the disease.
