Carroll Track & Soccer Stadium on the IUPUI campus.

    Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR) is dedicated to funding biomedical research to find better treatments, and ultimately, to prevent and cure systemic lupus erythematosis (lupus; sle). ALR is the largest provider of private funding for lupus research in the country; and was founded in 1999 by Robert Wood Johnson IV, a member of the founding family of the Johnson and Johnson Company. Since its founding, ALR has given more money to lupus research than any non-governmental agency in the world; to date $60 million has been committed.

    Check in for the 3rd Annual Indianapolis Walk With Us to Cure Lupus starts at 9:00 AM with the walk starting at 10:00 AM on Saturday, September 10th. 100% of your contributions to the ALR go directly to support lupus research programs. Register at walk.lupusresearch.org , or call 866.925.5257 for more information.
