2023 Walk to End Lupus Now, DC


Welcome to the Team McGlynn fundraising page.

The fact that you are here and reading these words already means so much to me! I was diagnosed with SLE Lupus back in 2007 and had many years of escalating arthritis, and kidney damage before finally getting relief through SCIENCE- through a clinical trial for Benlysta. Benlysta was the first drug approved specifically for lupus management in over 60 years, and I don’t know where I would be now, if I weren’t a part of that study many years ago.
 I’m very lucky now, my lupus has been in a quiet state and I’ve been medication free for 5 years! I even have a 4 year old miracle who reminds me every day how lucky I am. Not everyone with Lupus is as lucky as me, and I can only hope I maintain this current remission. 

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. 

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