Lupus Blows, Theresa Knows!
Last year, as we returned to an IN-PERSON event, LBTK raised just over $19,000, the most we've ever accomplished in one summer, and it placed us in 4th place overall in national fundraising! This year's event will be IN-PERSON on Saturday, October 14th at Chandler Fashion Mall! For the past 26 years, Theresa has been living with lupus, and since 2007, Lupus Blows, Theresa Knows has raised over $156,000 toward lupus research and programs/services that benefit lupus warriors like Theresa. Our goal this year is to set the bar even higher and raise $20,000! We'll also have some fun along the way - be sure to vote in the "fun"draising poll on our team's Facebook page, which asks the question "What should Dave do if we raise $20,000?" Local family & friends, please check your calendars and join us on 10/14.
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. Thank you for your generosity!
