The event will consist of a standard 5K run that begins at 8:00 a.m. followed by the 5K FITathlon Challenge wave starting at 9:00 am that will include Fit Challenges throughout the course. This event will also include a Kids Fun Zone which features the NOBESTIY EXPO, Inflatable’s, fitness obstacle course and games for the kids and The LUPU Zone which will be located inside Sloss Furnaces.

The Lupus Foundation of America, Mid-South Chapter is dedicated to solving the cruel mystery of lupus while providing caring support and programs for those who suffer from its brutal impact in Alabama, Kentucky and Tennessee. Lupus is one of the cruelest, most mysterious diseases on earth – it’s known as an unpredictable and misunderstood autoimmune disease that impacts different organ systems in the body. Lupus is difficult to diagnose, hard to live with and challenging to treat. While lupus is disabling and potentially fatal, in many cases the most serious health effects from the disease can be managed through aggressive medical treatment and lifestyle changes.  www.lupusmidsouth.org

* An estimated 1.5 million Americans have Lupus       
* Although Lupus can affect men and women of all ages, 90% of individuals diagnosed with the disease are women
*  Most people will develop the disease between the ages of 15-44·
* Lupus is two to three times more prevalent among women of color — African American, Hispanics/Latinos, Asians, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islander 
* 20% percent of people with lupus will have a parent or sibling who already have lupus or may develop lupus
