Yogis for Lupus

Welcome to our fundraising team page.

I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus soon after I delivered my son in 1997. In times of a Lupus flare, I will endure extreme body aches, tiredness and kidney and heart challenges. Over the years I have learned to listen to my body and rest when needed as well as lots of self care. My yoga practice and support from my family have been the most helpful to manage the symptoms.

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 we are taking action in the fight against lupus. Join us as we participate in the Lupus Foundation of America's Walk to End Lupus Now! in [city] to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.

Will you join our team and 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 also 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. 
  • 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. Join our team today and support our efforts! 


P.S. I love building community so there will be a private page for checking in on our 5K or 10k preparation training, fun pictures/videos, yoga stretching exercises for before and after our walks and more fun. There is no cost to register, but if you decide to add a donation 100% of the donation wil go directly to the Lupus Foundation of America.
