About the Inaugural Slam Dunk Against Lupus Event
Lupus Research Alliance, the world’s largest private funder of innovative lupus research, is partnering with Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried for the Slam Dunk Against Lupus event Saturday, Sept 23, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. MDT, at the University of Denver’s Magness Arena inside the Ritchie Center.
Faried, whose mother Waudda suffers from lupus, will host the event — 100% of proceeds will help the Lupus Research Alliance fund scientific discoveries to better treat, prevent and cure lupus. Lupus is a challenging autoimmune disease in which the immune system mistakenly attacks instead of protects the body’s own tissues and organs.
Ticket holders will join Faried, other professional athletes and celebrities for an afternoon filled with sports, entertainment, prizes, philanthropy, and fun, with 100% of proceeds going to lupus research.
