18th Annual Metro Walk for Lupus
The Michigan Lupus Foundation, 18th Annual Metro Walk for Lupus will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2012. The walk will be held at Lake St. Clair Metropark in Harrison Township, MI. Registration will begin at 10:30 a.m. and the walk will begin at 11:15 a.m. The route is designed for people of all ages and abilities. Walkers with over $75 in pledges will receive a T-Shirt.
Very little is known about lupus, although more people have lupus than cerebral palsy, sickle-cell anemia and cystic fibrosis combined. Those who know or have a loved one whose life has been affected by the disease are encouraged to participate. The proceeds from the walk will enable the Michigan Lupus Foundation to provide monthly support groups, community outreach programs, patient advocacy at state and national levels and research advancements.
For walk, pledge or sponsorship information contact The Michigan Lupus Foundation office at (800) 705-6677 or online at www.milupus.org.
