TEAM KEEP IT MOVIN' Virtual Walk To End Lupus Now South Jersey
Hello family and friends! I'm taking part in the Virtual Walk to End Lupus Now® South Jersey NJ.
I was diagnosed with SLE in 2007, paralyzed from the waist down, and told that I may not walk again. After going from a wheelchair, to a walker, to a cane, and being able to participate in my first lupus walk in Ocean City in 2009, I realized that I had to raise awareness for lupus to educate others and to also let other lupus warriors know to stay encouraged, and to not give up because we are not alone.
I actively raise lupus awareness in my life by sharing my lupus journey through educating others on social media, in my community, and through fundraising events. Due to Covid-19, I unfortunately will not be able to have my annual bowling event, but you can still help me raise awareness by joining my team virtually! Yes, you can walk or run from anywhere –in your house, in your neighborhood, or at the track. No matter where you are, your steps, your fundraising and your power will get us one step closer to ending lupus.
The money we raise helps sustain the support programs and services of the Lupus Foundation of America, Philadelphia Tri-State Chapter that help the more than 40,000 individuals living with the challenges of lupus in the Philadelphia Tri-State area.
You can make a difference in the continued effort to find the causes of and cure for lupus through locally funded research and advocacy efforts.
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can affect any part of the body (ex. skin, joints, internal organs). Lupus is a disease of flares and remission – making life with lupus very unpredictable. You can click on the Chapter Home link above to find more information on lupus and how you can help us solve the cruel mystery.
Your generosity can help us support thousands affected by lupus, who rely on us to provide critical answers to questions as well as caring support. Your donation would also help accelerate our medical research efforts which seek to bring new advances to people sooner rather than later. Whether it is the individual living with lupus or those at risk, family members, or health professionals, you help provide the tools needed to navigate the complexities and challenges of this disease.
Together, we are making an impact today to fulfill the needs of people affected by lupus, while creating a better future for them and future generations.
