We are Walking to End Lupus. Will You Join Us?
On Saturday, September 28, 2019, we will be participating in Walk to End Lupus Now® in memory of our beloved Nairie Mirzayan Aslanyan. Nairie was diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematososus (SLE) at the age of 15 and succumbed to this heartbreaking disease on October 27, 2018 after battling the illness with strength, courage, and determination for eighteen years. This walk is especially meaningful to us because Nairie wanted to participate herself, but was unable to due to various complications; however, we are certain that she will be walking with us in spirit as she does every day.
What a difference it would make if doctors could say, “There is a cure for lupus.” Until then though, there is great work to be done. That’s why we are taking action in the fight against lupus. Join us as we participate in the Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now® to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.
Did you know that the Lupus Foundation of America is the only national force devoted to solving the mystery of lupus, one of the world’s cruelest, most unpredictable, and devastating diseases, while giving caring support to those who suffer from its brutal impact? The Walk to End Lupus Now® is an important community event because it fundraises to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through programs of research, education, support, and advocacy. With your support we surpassed our team goal of $1,000 and are increasing our new goal to $2,500 to support the Foundation's effort to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus? Every single dollar counts. A generous contribution of $25 or $50 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.
Together, we can find a cure for lupus. Thank you for your generosity!
