2020 Walk to End Lupus Now: Triangle

Lupus Sucks

Please join us for the walk to end Lupus on April 18th!  This is the first year we'll be walking without our beloved Kanisha Johnson Shipman.  She was passionate about raising money for the Lupus Foundation in hopes a cure for Lupus would be found.  She fought hard and long.  The worst part she would say is that the effects of Lupus never came for awhile and left, they stayed and just added one on top of another.  She never got a break. No one should ever have to go through what she did.  Lupus truly SUCKS! 

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!  And as a special incentive, for each person that raises $100 or more for our team, I will pay their registration fee of $10.

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!
