5K Run/Walk for Lupus

A group of runners takes part in Saturday's 5K Run/Walk for Lupus at Ogletree Gap Park in Copperas Cove.

COPPERAS COVE — Dozens of runners, walkers, and supporters turned out Saturday morning at Ogletree Gap Park in Copperas Cove for the 3rd annual 5K Run/Walk for Lupus benefit hosted by Team JLyons and the Central Texas Starzz.

The event, which also included a car show, K9 demonstration by the Coryell County Sheriff’s Department, martial arts exhibition, a Zumba exercise class and other activities, is designed to raise awareness and benefit research to find a cure for lupus, a disease in which the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and organs, affecting joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs.
