There’s going to be a Lupus walk in Chicago organized by the Lupus Foundation of America’s Illinois Chapter! Well, 2 actually: one downtown in Grant Park (Saturday, Oct 2nd) and one in the Western Suburbs (Sunday, Oct 3rd).
This event is a fundraiser for lupus research and also a public awareness initiative. I found a statistic from another lupus walk website – Lupus Research – one that already happened this summer, that said 2/3 of the public don’t know anything about lupus! This is astounding!
I am going to register a team this year for at least one, maybe two! If you would like to join my team, contact me! meredith [dot] kooi [at] gmail [dot] com
