For the past couple of years, I've invited loved ones to Wear Purple for Lupus as a means to raise awareness of this disease. This year, I'm literally stepping my advocacy and awareness up a notch -- this year, I'm participating in the Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now™ in Atlanta, GA to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million other people living with lupus in the United States.
Imagine a day when doctors can say, “There is a cure for lupus.” Until that day though, there is work to be done. That’s why I’m taking more action in the fight against lupus via Steps for Stephanie!
Will you join #StepsforStephanie and help us reach our fundraising goal? A generous contribution of $10 or $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. Trust me, it’s worth the effort! Every single dollar counts.
Then, break out your FitBit™, Apple Watch, Garmin, Samsung Gear or other pedometer and get some steps in for a good cause! We'll be walking on Saturday, April 29 at Piedmont Park. Team members that donate $50 or more and walk will receive a complimentary team t-shirt!
Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Join #StepsforStephanie today and support our efforts!
