2023 Walk to End Lupus Now, Baltimore

Chronically Fabulous

Welcome to our fundraising team page.

Welcome Team, Chronically Fabulous! My name is Mandy and I was recently diagnosed with Lupus in 2022. It has been quite the challenging year but with support of my husband, son, friends and family I'm quickly learning how to navigate this new normal and embrace living #chronicallyfabulous! 

What is lupus? Lupus is a chronic (long-term) disease that can cause inflammation and pain in any part of your body. It's an autoimmune disease, which means that your immune system, that usually fights infections…attacks healthy tissue instead!

I will be joining the Lupus Foundation of America in the Walk to End Lupus Now. I would love for you to join me at the walk! Every step and every dollar raised brings us one step closer to a cure for Lupus. The walk is Saturday, September 30th 2023 at the The Ellipse on the National Mall in Washington D.C. 

Start time: 

9:30am - Ceremony Begins

10:00am-  Walk Begins

Distance: 1.8 miles 

Will you join our team and help us reach our fundraising goal? You’ll be supporting the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus. You can also support by making a secure contribution on our walk page. 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. 

Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Join our team today and support our efforts! 

Thank you for your support!
