Have you ever lost someone you cared about to Lupus? Do you know someone who has lost someone they cared about to Lupus? Does anyone you care about currently suffer from symptoms associated with Lupus?
Will you join me in my efforts to find a cure for Lupus as I honor the legacy of my dear friend, Janet Levy Pinder who faithfully sponsored this walk until her passing to complications due to Lupus on January 4, 2023?
Our team is seeking to raise at least $5,000 for this effort.
Here are a few ways to help.
-Donate today. We need at least 50 people to donate $100 to meet the $5,000 goal. This may be giving up your coffee run, or forgoing a few meals out. Check to see if your company matches donations. (Federal ID# is 43-1131436 for matching gift applications)
-Share the fundraising link with your family, friends, and co-workers on social media, text, email, or other communication media.
-Join us live and participate in the walk on September 30, 2023. It's a great way to improve your health and celebrate Janet's legacy.
-Join us virtually and cheer us on if you can't join us live.
There are an estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.
I am joining thousands of people across the country for the Walk to End Lupus Now®. I hope that you will join me in any way including lacing up your sneakers and by donating to my fundraising page.

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!
Your gift is appreciated. Please consider sharing this link with others within your network as well.
