Press Release Body = The Lupus Alliance of LI/Q is happy to announce that the 14th
Annual Walk-Along for Lupus will be held this year on October 21st, in Eisenhower
Park, Field #6. Greg-T and the Z-100 prize van, live music, face painting the NY
Islanders give-a-way van, yoga and massage demonstrations, and more will round out
the day as over 2,000 people walk to help those suffering from lupus.

To register to be a walker at this event visit www.lupusli.org where you can
register and collect donations right online. Why not utilize those friends you've
made on myspace, friendster, and facebook, as well as those out-of-town family
members by collecting donations online while helping those that suffer from lupus; a
chronic life-threatening disease that has no known cure.

This year, to help say thanks to those who walk and donate, the Lupus Alliance has
added new weekly online contests with great prizes for most money raised online,
most team members recruited and more. Pre-registered teams that raise more than $300
before 10/01/06 will receive signs with their team name on them that they can
proudly display as they walk and teams that have more than 8 people can order
pre-packaged lunches for every member of their team! The top fundraising school will
receive a special thank you prize this year as well.

As always those who raise $50 or more will receive a great Walk T-shirt and those
who raise $500 or more will receive a gift certificate from Macy`s, BestBuy or
Fortunoff`s. Not Internet savvy? Don't worry; you can still collect donations with a
Walk-Along envelope. Just call 1-800-850-9000 and ask for a walk packet to be sent
to your home.

The Lupus Alliance of LI/Q has helped thousands of people with lupus since 1955. The
Walk-Along for Lupus is their biggest fundraiser of the year. With over 2 Million
Americans diagnosed with lupus today, the Lupus Alliance needs your help more than
ever to assist those living with lupus while supporting novel research into the
cure. Please help and give your support by walking, or donating! For more
