I am making my mark on lupus for my Aunt Karen!
On Sunday March 4th, 2018, my family unexpectedly lost my Aunt Karen, who lived with Lupus. My aunt was an intelligent, witty, courageous, philanthropic woman and I am running the Seattle Rock N Roll Half Marathon in tribute to her (especially because she loved music). Any donation is welcome, no matter how small.
If you donate $100 or more, I will dedicate a mile of my race to the person of your choosing! So make sure to tell me their name when you donate (: The first mile of the race will be dedicated to my late Aunt Andrea, who we lost in August of 2017.
Join me and support the mission of the Lupus Foundation of America! My goal is to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States. Your donation will help me reach my personal fundraising goal and support the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus!

• Lupus is a complex disease that is hard to define. It strikes without warning, affects each person differently, and has no known causes or cure.
• While lupus mainly affects women between the ages of 15-44, men and children are not spared.
• Lupus symptoms can be severe and highly unpredictable and can damage any organ or tissue, from the skin or joints to the heart or kidneys.
• Only one drug has ever been developed and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration specifically to treat lupus.
