More than 4,000 people with lupus, their friends and families converged in the nation’s capital on Saturday to shed light on the cruel mystery that is lupus. Grand marshaled by multi-talented entertainer and television personality Nick Cannon, the Lupus Foundation of America‘s Walk to End Lupus Now™ event in Washington, D.C. transformed Pennsylvania Avenue into a stream of purple, the color lupus advocates associate with this debilitating, poorly understood disease.

Joined by Walk Ambassador and New England Patriots defensive back Tavon Wilson and Master of Ceremonies Eileen Whelan (meteorologist for ABC7), Cannon cut the opening ceremony ribbon. (Cannon’s participation in the DC Walk to End Lupus Now event was supported by Bristol-Myers Squibb.)
