2024 Walk to End Lupus Now, NYC

The Limers

I wanted to take a moment to share with you the inspiring journey of someone very close to my heart - Melissa Mohabir. As we gear up for our second Lupus Awareness Walk, I couldn't think of a better time to highlight her remarkable story.

Melissa has been a true warrior in her battle against lupus. She faced the challenges of this relentless disease with unwavering strength, resilience, and an indomitable spirit. Through the ups and downs, the pain and fatigue, she has remained an incredible source of inspiration to everyone around her.

This year, as we come together as a team, I want to honor Melissa and all individuals like her who confront lupus every day. Our collective effort in this walk is not just about raising awareness; it's a symbol of solidarity and support for those who endure this invisible battle.

Let's lace up our sneakers and hit the pavement with determination, just as Melissa has faced each day with courage. Let's remind the world that the lupus community is strong, resilient, and committed to finding a cure.

I encourage you all to share your own messages of encouragement, stories of  resilience, and reasons why you've joined our team. We are more than just participants; we are a community brought together by a shared purpose.

As we walk in Melissa's honor and for all those affected by lupus, let's raise our voices and make this year's Lupus Awareness Walk a powerful testament to the strength of our collective spirit.

Thank you for being a part of this journey and for supporting not only  Melissa but countless others who bravely battle lupus every day. Together, we are making a difference

Please consider walking with us.

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!
