Hey y’all, hey!! I’m joining the Walk to End Lupus Now in Houston on May 7, 2022, on the campus of Texas Southern University! Go Tigers!
I am asking each of you to give at least $10 to my fundraising efforts. You can give more. I’m hoping to raise $500 (I can't modify the preset amount on the donation ticker) for Lupus Foundation of America - Texas Gulf Coast Chapter.
Check this out, though...this year's walk is on May 7, 2022, and that will be the fourth anniversary of my first race ever, which I completed at the 2018 Walk to End Lupus Now! I trained to run that 5K in 2018. I refused to walk, because there was a time not too long before that when I could barely move. I wanted to run even though I didn’t know if I’d be able to finish.
I am a lupus warrior...a survivor! I know it’s easy to forget that I have lupus, because I’m always bopping around running, cycling, etc. Despite the smiles on the post-run and race pictures, it’s not always easy.
Running empowers me. I run hoping to inspire other lupus and autoimmune patients. I’m an advocate for lupus, a proponent of healthier living, and an activist for racial justice and equity in health. Please help me fight for that.
The money I raise helps the Lupus Foundation of America, Gulf Coast Chapter in their mission to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through programs of research, education, support and advocacy. This is especially supportive for the 60,000+ individuals living with the challenges of lupus in the Gulf Coast area.
You can make a difference in the continued effort to find the causes of and cure for lupus through locally funded research and advocacy efforts. Visit our home page at lupus.org/texasgulfcoast for more information on lupus and how you can help us solve the cruel mystery of lupus.
Together, we are making an impact today to fulfill the needs of people like me who have lupus, while creating a better future for us and future generations.
