In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic the scheduled walk in 2020 was reworked to be a virtual walk. This year's 2021 Walk to End Lupus will again be a Virtual Event on Saturday, October 16th. This experience will keep us together safely (virtually) while we are apart due to the corona virus. Every step and every dollar raised brings us one step closer to a cure. So, this means you can participate at a time that's most convenient for you and from where ever you might be. It couldn't get any easier. I will, however, definitely miss seeing all of your smiling faces and the support you so graciously show me as I navigate my journey with Lupus.
This will be my 8th year participating in the Lupus Foundation of America's Walk to End Lupus Now!
As many of you may know, I was diagnosed with lupus ten years ago and take numerous medications to control and suppress the progression of this incurable disease. As you can imagine this cause is very near and dear to my heart.
Will you please consider making a secure donation on my walk page to help me reach my fundraising goal? You are also invited and encouraged to join our team Bonnie's Prayer Warriors for a Cure. In doing so, you will be supporting the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people, myself included, who are affected by lupus.
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 cause inflammation and damage in various parts of the body (joints; skin; kidneys; brain; the lining of the heart, lungs or intestines; blood and blood vessels and other organs or tissues).
While lupus can strike anyone at any time, 90% of people living with lupus are women.
Together, with your assistance, we can raise funds toward increased research, new and improved treatments and enhanced patient and outreach education. Please join our team today by making a donation in support of our efforts!
