I'm running my second half marathon for Lupus Research Alliance! It is the only lupus organization to host a team in the 2020 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon and I'm excited to be one of five runners on it!! On March 15, 2020, our Team Life Without Lupus will proudly represent the lupus community in New York City, across the United States, and around the world. I'm super excited to run this race and to raise money for lupus research as I continue to battle this awful disease! I'm happy that I'm healthy enough to be able to represent all lupus warriors!
There is no cure for lupus. As a patient, running the 2020 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon for Team Life Without Lupus offers a unique opportunity for me to realize a personal goal (running a whole 13.1 miles in the cold) while raising vital funds for research and programs to help people with this often unforgiving disease. My journey with lupus has not been an easy one but I strive to be an example of hope and strength to others like me. I need you to help support me and other lupus patients by donating towards continued research for a cure - donate today.
The 2020 United Airlines New York City Half Marathon provides both runners and donors with an opportunity to transform lives in a direct and meaningful way.
Please know that 100% of your donation goes to support lupus research programs because the Lupus Research Alliance Board of Directors funds all administrative and fundraising expenses.
As a runner, I will experience New York City like never before with the 2020 United Airlines New York City Half Marathon! For the third year in a row, the course will take runners over the Manhattan Bridge and up the FDR Drive before a crosstown dash on 42nd Street and a turn north on 7th Avenue, through Times Square, and into Central Park. The route finishes just north of Tavern on the Green.
