Team Loretta

Welcome to our fundraising team page.

 In 1997, my sister Loretta Mitchell was diagnosis with Systemic Lupus. She had been going to the doctor for several years prior and was misdiagnosed because Lupus symptoms mimics so many other illnesses and can impact individuals differently. That is when she became a “Lupus Warrior”. This year I will honor her legacy and continue to walk for awareness of this disease and in support of all the Lupus Warriors still fighting. Please support my efforts by either walking with me or financially assisting me in reaching my TEAM LORETTA goal for 2019.


Imagine a day when doctors can say, "There is a cure for lupus". Until that day though, there is work to be done. That's why we are taking action in the fight against lupus. Join us as we participate in the Lupus Foundation of America's Walk to End Lupus Now® to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.

Will you join our team and help us reach our fundraising goal? You’ll be supporting the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus. You can also support by making a secure contribution on our walk page. Every single dollar counts!

Did you know?

  • Lupus is a mysterious and misunderstood autoimmune disease. It strikes without warning, affects each person differently, and has no known causes or cure.
  • 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.
  • While lupus can strike anyone at any time, 90% of people living with lupus are women. Women of color are at especially high risk. 
  • Only one drug has ever been developed and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration specifically to treat the disease.

Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Join our team today and support our efforts!
