The Lupus Research Foundation follows guidelines given by the CDC, leading experts, and rheumatologist Dr. Timothy Niewold including wearing masks or face shields, maintaining social distance, and washing hands. We apply strategies typically recommended for protecting the elderly.

What is the Lupus Research Foundation?

The LRF is a new, progressive, energetic organization focused on finding a cure within 7 years.  We are patient-run, and, through the Lupus Spiel, enjoy a world-wide reputation for raising awareness and having fun while doing it.  Join us in the fight against lupus, and help find a cure.

Our Flagship Event is the Lupus Spiel. What Is It?

The Lupus Spiel is a charity Professional-Amateur tournament designed to raise awareness and funds for lupus research by combining amateur curlers with Olympians and world-class curling champions. It is held across the country, with its largest and original location in Blaine, Minnesota, called “Lupus Spiel USA”. The Lupus Spiel is the largest tournament of its kind in the world. So far, curlers have raised $355,000. Click here for more information about the Lupus Spiel!

The LRF has the right to refuse entry to any person(s) for any event any reason on their sole discretion.

The Lupus Spiel was a blast – a weekend filled with crazy, fun curling to raise money for a great cause.  I highly recommend it!

Awesome experience.  A well organized and fun event.  The Lupus Spiel is a MUST on any curler’s bonspiel to-do list.

I have been going to the Lupus Spiel for several years now and it’s always a great time for all the curlers!  I have made so many friends over the years – not only my teammates, but the other participants as well.  And of course I love seeing how much money we can raise for a great cause!
