I am excited to be fundraising for the Lupus Foundation of America Walk to End Lupus Now® for the fourth year in a row with a goal of raising at least $1,000 to support lupus research, education programs and support services.
Over the last 4.5 years working with the LFA I have had the absolute honor to be inspired and motivated by the courageous and strong lupus community. I've seen firsthand how our resources, educational events, disease management tools and caring support services make a difference. And, I've witnessed the incredible progress lupus research has made over the last several years thanks to the funding of important studies.
You can make a difference by donating 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. And, 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.
Will you help me reach (and maybe exceed?!) my $1,000 fundraising goal this year?
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.
Lupus is hard to diagnose, but the Lupus Foundation of America is working to make life easier and more comfortable for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.
Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Thank you for your generosity!
