From rheumatologist Dr. Timothy Niewold: “The best advice is to do a good job with social distancing and hand washing, and apply the measures that have been recommended for the elderly and honestly that the general population should be following as well.”

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.

What is the Lupus Spiel?

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!
