I am Racing to End lupus!
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!
Let me tell you about my friend McKenna. I’ve coached her since she was 9. She’s a Mars High school, record setting, All State cross country and track runner and is approaching her 17th birthday. This past summer, her training came to a screeching halt when after weeks of testing and doctor’s visits, Kenna was diagnosed with Lupus. I’m running the Bermuda Marathon, and Bermuda Triangle Challenge, to raise funds and awareness for this debilitating disease. Thank you for your continued support for not only McKenna, but the many others who are affected daily.
Did you know?
- 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.
Let's end this cycle now! By making a donation today you are joining the fight against lupus!
Your continued support means the world to me...thank you in advance for all you do for my life!
