Walk for Lupus NOW – April 28, 2012


Well, I’ve got the running/walking bug.  I did my first 5k on Saturday for the Georgia SPCA – Run for the Rescues.  It was a blast!  I had a lot of fun and also observed what was needed to do a 5k and family fun run in memory of my mom for the Georgia Lyme Disease Association.  I am in contact with them to begin coordinating the 5k for Mother’s Day 2013.  I am very excited at the possibility of this family day in honor of my mom!

In the meantime, I’ve decided to raise funds and do a walk for Lupus.  Even though my mom did not have Lupus, it was one of the many diagnosis that were thrown out for her.  It is another one of those “auto-immune” diseases that puts your body into attack itself mode.  Personally I don’t think your body just turns on you that way.  There has to be a root cause.  Hopefully the money raised in this walk will help research, promote awareness and give help to those in Georgia who suffer from this nasty disease.

If your heart tells you to…please visit my website and donate.  $5, $10, $20 – it does not matter.  Any and all donations are so needed and appreciated!  My goal is $500 but wouldn’t it be sweet to double that??  Also, if you would like to join our team and walk with us, please do!  The more the merrier and the more the more money for Lupus!  Thanks in advance!  xxoo
