About This Activity

The first annual Dr. John Siegel Jr. Memorial 5K, held on the beautiful campus of HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, is a not-to-be-missed running event in Huntsville. The event is inspired by Dr. Siegel's valiant fight against lupus, and its proceeds further efforts to serve the 85,000 lupus patients covered by the Mid-South Chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America.

The Lupus Foundation of America, Mid-South Chapter is the leading nonprofit health organization dedicated to finding the causes of and cure for lupus and providing support and services to all people affected by lupus in the Mid-South. Lupus is a chronic, lifelong and possibly fatal disease that can drastically change the lives of the many women, men and children affected. The Mid-South Chapter serves thousands of patients annually with information, referrals, literature, educational seminars and support groups.

Funds raised during the Walk, through sponsorships, individual gifts and team events, stay in our service area to allow the Mid-South to provide educational events, support groups, wellness activities, online interaction and easy-to-understand content, and personalized assistance with the variety of issues that can impact those who suffer from lupus.
