Butterflies in the Park 2015
What a fantastic day this will be! We are going to have fun and raise lupus awareness! JOIN US!
Our annual walk and fundraiser, Butterflies in the Park – a Walk for Lupus Awareness will be held on Sunday, June 7th. Butterflies in the Park is the Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus 3K walk for lupus awareness. We are so proud to say that we raised over $45, 000 through the 2014 walk that went directly to our efforts to inform the public and the medical community about lupus, support our client assistance program, push for earlier, life-saving diagnoses for those afflicted, and to spur governments and foundations to fund research toward a cure.
Last year, over 400 people joined Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus for a fun day of walking, talking and helping to raise awareness about the devastating disease of lupus. This fun walk around the beautiful Oaks Park area and the Willamette River is a great way for family & friends to spend time together and support one another. Butterflies in the Park 3K walk festivities begin and end within the Historic Dance Pavilion building located just inside Oaks Park.
