Hello! My name is Pia and in August of 2015 I began exhibiting symptoms such as hair loss, extreme fatigue, a skin rash and joint pain. Shortly after I was diagnosed with lupus and my life has been forever changed! I am walking to support my mother, my aunt (who lost her battle) and myself who have all suffered in silence. I would be honored if you would join me in this walk or donate to the cause!
We are excited to be participating as a team in the Kansas City Walk with Us to Cure Lupus!
Walk with Us to Cure Lupus is the Alliance for Lupus Research’s (ALR) signature national fundraising program. As a team, friends, family and colleagues come together to raise awareness of lupus and funds for lupus research.
Lupus is a devastating autoimmune disease that affects an estimated 1.5 million Americans, making the disease more common than leukemia, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and cystic fibrosis. The exact cause of lupus is unknown and there is no known cure.
We chose to walk as a team with ALR because of its commitment to prevent, treat and cure lupus. Since 1999, the ALR has committed over $100-million to lupus research, making it the largest private funder of lupus research in the world.
We’d love for you to join our team, but if you can’t make it to the Walk on October 1st, you can still be a part of the movement. To support our team’s fundraising efforts click on one of our names below to make a donation. 100% of your donation will go to support lupus research programs, because the ALR Board of Directors funds all fundraising and administrative costs.
