2020 Atlanta Walk to End Lupus Now


Welcome to our fundraising team page FIFTY SHADES OF AWESOME!!!

HAPPY 2020 Everyone!!!

This will be our 8th Annual Lupus Walk and we are SOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED to start our fundraising efforts!
This Team was created by her family and besties.  We walk in honor of our dear friend "Leesa Sengaphone" who lost her fight with Lupus on Feb 1, 2013. She brought sunshine to our family for many years. She never let this disease control her life and lived every moment with strength, grace and carried the sunshine spirit everywhere she went. Her motto was "Live, Laugh, Love" and she did this until the very end.  She had spoke of walking one day in the walk, but unfortunately never got the chance; therefore; her friends and family will carry on the torch for her and many other warriors for Lupus.  

In 2016, Lupus Warrior CRYSTAL PURNELL joined our Team.  She is battling this awful disease and we couldn't be more happier to share her story with yall and carry the torch for her as well!!

Since 2013...Team Fifty Shades of Awesome reached out to everyone we knew by sending emails, text & facebook messages, holding yearly silent auctions at various locations and holding fun events until Lupus walk day! With everyone coming together......

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. 
  • Only one drug has ever been developed and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration specifically to treat the disease.

Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Lets make a difference one day at a time!!!!
