Did you know nearly 1.5 million Americans suffer from Lupus? Help raise funds for them by participating in this year’s walk. The Walk to End Lupus Now supports the Lupus Foundation of America and will take place on Saturday October 25. The Walk kicks off at 11:00 a.m. and participants should meet at the Boston Common Parkman bandstand (145 Tremont St.) The day of festivities kick off at 10:00 a.m. with check in at 11:00 a.m. and closing remarks take place at 1:00 p.m. Be sure to wear purple, the signature color of the Walk to End Lupus event. The walk is a 1 mile loop around Boston Common. Participants are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket and snacks after the walk.
Gather your fellow Walk to End Lupus Now walk participants and grab a hearty breakfast before the walk begins. At Finch we offer a green smoothie and oatmeal which is a healthy and nutritious way to start your day. Looking for more substantial morning fare? We love The Paramount (44 Charles Street) they serve everything from caramel banana French toast to Blue cheese bacon and spinach omelets. We also love the North Street Grille (229 North St.) for breakfast in the North End. They have all of your favorite breakfast staples with New England twists, like the Lobster Benedict and the crudité French Toast. Theo’s Cozy Corner (162 Salem Street) is also a solid breakfast option, its cash only so don’t forget to hit up the ATM before dining.
To get to the walk please take the MBTA to the Park Street Station which is accessible via the green and red line. For parking you can park at the Boston Common parking garage and Boston Common is a short and easy walk from The Boxer Hotel.
