There is a common thread that ties all autoimmune diseases together. The time is NOW to link together, to do all we can to find it. Because when we link together, we are stronger... 

That is what the Autoimmune Walk is all about.  One person, linking with another, and another, to give a face to autoimmune disease. To make an impact. To bring us closer to a cure.

Last year, AARDA raised more than $145,000 through Autoimmune Walks across the country.  In 2016, as we mark the 25th anniversary of our founding, we set a goal of $225,000.  Won't you join us in Cleveland, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, New York, Detroit or Los Angeles?  Or sign up for our Virtual Walk and walk any day, anywhere!

Read an open letter from Kellie Martin,
National Autoimmune Walk Ambassador

The Autoimmune Walk gives people across the United States a chance to come together in a life-changing event and make a difference for all who are affected by an autoimmune disease -- an estimated 50 million Americans.

Teams of people come out and walk - one lap or all; up to 5 miles - each loop honoring a different autoimmune disease, a person's unique connection, a hope for the future.

Whether you walk one lap or many,  as an individual or with a team, virtually or at one of our many locations across the country, you can be proud to be raising vital funding and awareness for the work of AARDA - making a positive difference in the fight against autoimmune disease.
