2018 Walk To End Lupus Now: Des Moines

Pearl's Lupie Girls

Welcome to our fundraising team page. 


We are taking action in the fight against Lupus in honor of April Streit-Miller who was first diagnosed about 20 years ago and has had several issues due to her Lupus.  We will participate in the Lupus Foundation of America's Walk to End Lupus Now! in Des Moines in August to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.

Will you join help us reach our fundraising goal? You’ll be supporting the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus. You can support by making a secure contribution on our walk page. Every single dollar counts!

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


Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Thank you for your support!!!!
