Lupus is a mysterious autoimmune disease that is difficult to treat, difficult to diagnose, and challenging to fight. Since 1991, the Lupus WolfRide has been contributing to this fight through a cycling Gran Fondo fundraiser for the Lupus Foundation of America - Heartland Chapter. The event is held in Eureka, MO. and brings cyclists and communities together to raise awareness and, through contributions on behalf of the participating cyclists, raise money for the cause. These acts of selflessness and generosity have helped the 1.5 million Americans suffering from lupus manage the disease and live quality lives.
