Walk to End Lupus Now – Rescheduled!
After being flooded out by the remnants of September’s hurricane and tropical storm, the Lupus Foundation of America has officially re-scheduled the Arizona Walk to End Lupus Now!
The event will be held on Sunday afternoon November 16th, at the same location it was originally planned: Scottsdale Center for the Arts, 75th and Main Streets, Scottsdale, Arizona. Registration will begin at 3pm, and the walk will start at 4pm.
If you want to register for the Arizona Walk to End Lupus Now, please visit the updated website new event date and information. You can sign up new teams or new team members, submit online donations or team fundraising dollars online at www.walktoendlupusnow.org/arizona.
Please join the fight against lupus!
If you are a reader who would like to help, please sign up with me as a virtual walker, and join Toni Grimes’ team like I did. My previous commitments keep me from being able to attend the walk on the new date, but I am going to participate in-absentia. You could do this too! Even if you cannot go the to an actual walk location, or cannot walk the physical course, you can still be a virtual walker in our Arizona event or in a walk event in your community. Just make sure that people you ask to donate know that you are not going to attend or if you are not physically walking!
Or, perhaps it would be awesome if you could make a small donation to support Lupus Adventurer for my virtual walk effort, or my team as a group. Donations can be made online, or checks may be mailed with a donation form ( click here ) to: Lupus Foundation of America, Attn: Walk to End Lupus Now – Arizona, 2000 L Street, NW Suite #410, Washington, DC 20036.
Walkers that raise at least $100 are eligible for some great incentive gifts that LFA will provide to walkers either at or after the event. Last year, my husband and I received T-Shirts and an amazing golf umbrella! As of this weekend, Arizona Walk to End Lupus Now has received over $64,000 toward the 2014 goal of $100,000.
