Abbie's Butterfly Blast
Even though we may not get a big Lupus Loop with the broader community this year (thanks, COVID), we are planning to have our own private Abbie Loop in October to raise money for the Lupus Foundation of America Tri-State Chapter and run/walk with our closest friends and family.
The 29th Annual Lupus Loop 5K Run and 2.5 Mile Walk to End Lupus Now® will take place on October 25th, 2020. Join us and discover the power you have to help end lupus!
Last year, YOU helped us raise over $2,500 for lupus research and services in our area! Please help us bust that record this year!!
The money we raise helps sustain the support programs and services of the Lupus Foundation of America, Philadelphia Tri-State Chapter that helps 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.
Abbie was diagnosed with lupus in October of 2017, just after turning 11 years old. She has bravely and conscientiously tackled the disease with a positive attitude and the willingness to do what it takes to end it for everyone!
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.
WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN IN US AT THE WALK OR THE RACE THIS YEAR. Even if you cannot make it in person, please support our team in our fundraising efforts! All donations are 100% tax deductible and many employers provide great matches for foundations such as LFA. Click "Donate Now" to make an online donation. Thank you!
