Welcome to the Matilda Marchers Team Page!
THIS IS OUR 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF DOING THE WALK!!!
Our team was created in honor of our two moms. Heather's late mom, Dorothy Matilda Butterfield, died at the age of 43 from lupus. Kerrigan's mom, Mary Leigh Hennings, has lupus and is an inspriation to others fighting the disease. We wanted to do something to honor our moms. We wanted to do something to fight for them. So we started this team to raise as much money as we can for those still fighting this terrible disease, including so many of our team members, family, and friends. We wanted to be a part of finding a cure or a therapy that ends this fight forever.
Ten years later we've raised over $320,000 for the Lupus Foundation, and we are still at it!
Thank you so much for considering joining our team or donating to our team members. We are truly grateful and we need all the help that we can get.
Let's beat this thing,
Heather and Kerrigan
