Once again it's on!!
We are excited to be participating in the 2017 New Jersey Walk with Us to Cure Lupus!
Walk with Us to Cure Lupus is the Lupus Research Alliance’s signature national fundraising program. As a team, church members, friends, family and colleagues come together to raise awareness of lupus and funds for lupus research.
In honor of this year being the Walk with Us to Cure Lupus' 15th year anniversary, the Lupus Research Alliance is asking everyone to donate at least $15. Considering last year, Team Bethlehem raised and donated $2085 total, $15 each should be easily accomplished. Plus, as always, 100% of all donations will be used to support lupus research programs, because the Lupus Research Alliance Board of Directors funds all fundraising and administrative costs.
The amount we donated was raised in just a matter of weeks, which was great considering out late start. We signed up, formed a team, purchased t-shirts, and walked the WALK. This year we're looking to do it bigger and better by raising $5000. We are looking for every Team Bethlehem member to raise at least $100 each. For starters, take a look at the Successful Fundraising Toolkit. Use it to help reach your goal, because we all have to do our part to end this cruel disease.
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 again with the Lupus Research Alliance because of its commitment to prevent, treat and cure lupus. Since 1999, they have 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 rejoin or join our team this year, but if you can’t make it to the Walk on Saturday, May 20th, you can still be a part of the movement.
