Scotia Bank Charity Challenge 2019

The MGH Lupus Clinic has been caring for patients for 40 years. Lupus is a difficult and unpredictable autoimmune illness that can affect any organ system in the body, and can be complicated to manage. The Montreal General Hospital Lupus Clinic Team is walking and running to raise funds for lupus research, so this amazing, world-class team can continue to do their outstanding clinical work and research. All funds will go directly to the Singer Family Fund for Lupus Research at the MGH, and will be generously matched by the MGH Foundation.
