Lupus Society of Alberta
802-5920 Macleod Trail SW Calgary
The Lupus Society of Alberta hosts several different fundraising events on an on-going annual basis. Funds raised during our events help us support our lupus community through awareness campaigns, education initiatives, and partnerships with local health providers to further lupus research.
A significant portion of the Lupus Society of Alberta's funds come from our Casino fundraiser at Cowboys Casino in Calgary. We participate in this event every 18-20 months, with our next scheduled fundraiser occurring in Spring 2020. More details coming soon!
Please contact Donna at the LSA office if you would be interested in volunteering for the Casino!
The Lupus Society is enthusiastic about supporting community members who wish to fundraise on our behalf. Some third-party initiatives that we have supported in the past include:
- A dance party event
- A ticketed dinner at a restaurant
- An annual BBQ
- A team running on behalf of the LSA in the Calgary Marathon
If you have an idea for a third-party event to support our lupus community please don't hesitate to get in touch!
Step Out for Lupus
Step Out for Lupus is an annual 3K or 5K walk or run event. These events are not only an essential source of financial support for the work of the society, but also provide an opportunity for our lupus community to meet, support and learn from one another in a festive and validating environment. Currently, we have annual Step Out for Lupus events in the following communities:
- Calgary Step Out for Lupus - usually the last Sunday in April at Eau Claire Market
- Edmonton Step Out for Lupus - usually the second last/last Sunday in September at Rundle Park Family Centre
Please contact Donna at the LSA office if you would be interested in volunteering for any of these initiatives!
