About the Program

Team Make your Mark is a way to combine running or walking with fundraising to help solve the cruel mystery of lupus. This program gives both novice and experienced runners/walkers the opportunity to get involved supporting the fight against lupus. Team Make Your Mark is focused on 5k, 10k, half marathon and full marathon distances. There are two ways to participate: you can join an official team event, or do your own thing and sign up for the race of your choice.

Team Events

We participate in two to three team events per year. In 2017 these events are the Alaska Airlines Seattle Rock 'N' Roll Marathon and Half Marathon (June 18, 2017), the Brooklyn Rock 'N' Roll Half Marathon (October 14, 2017) and the Las Vegas Rock 'N' Roll Marathon and Half Marathon-along with the 5k and 10k (November 12, 2017).

When participants achieve their fundraising minimum for a team event ($1250), they will receive:

  • Event/race registration
  • Pre-race inspiration party
  • Fundraising and training guides
  • Professional coaching and gear
  • Inclusion in a national community

DIY Events

You can also fight lupus and receive support while doing any event of your choosing. If you choose to go the DIY route, you will have no fundraising minimum commitment. However, when you raise at least $500, you will begin to earn team gear and access to professional coaching and support. If you have another race in mind or would rather fundraise via triathlon, a cycling event, or summiting a mountain, the sky's the limit through our DIY peer-to-peer fundraising platform.
