Due to the Pandemic and the need to keep the safety of everyone in mind; this years event on On October 10, 2020 will now be a VIRTUAL Event. This would have been my 4th Walk.
It's going to be a very difficult fundraising season. My goal of $5000 remains the same. I know it will be extremely difficult to reach this goal. I'm hoping that you will still be able support the event. The need has not gone away. It's just become even more crucial.
I am doing this event for my mom and family members who have Lupus. My aunt had Lupus, my mom currently has it, and one of our younger cousins also had it.
Please help us find a Lupus cure for everyone. Fundraising is never easy. Would you please consider making a donation. Your support would be so greatly appreciated. Loves......

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 I’m taking action in the fight against lupus. Join me as I participate in Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now™ in San Francisco to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.
Will you make a donation to help me reach my personal fundraising goal and support the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus? A generous contribution of $25 or $55 can make a definite impact. What’s more, if your employer offers a Matching Gift Program to employees, you may be able to double your contribution with just a little bit of paperwork. Trust me, it’s worth the effort! 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. Thank you for your generosity!
