Join us and WALK-JOG-RUN for LUPUS!

Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus has joined forces with Terrapin Events on four of their five annual races in Portland, Oregon!  The four fun races we are partnering on are: My Muddy Valentine, Bridge to Brews, Cinco de Mayo, and Run Like Hell! Learn more about each of the races, how you can participate and help raise lupus awareness by clicking on the event tabs below!

Terrapin is all about having fun.

Some of their favorite things include listening to live music, drinking tasty beer, and, of course, RUNNING! However, they also have a serious side. They are a group of environmentally conscious people, serious about promoting lupus awareness and who organize great events with accurate course measurements, friendly staff and accurate chip timing.
