[SOS] Secretary of State Connie Lawson calling all Hoosiers to Walk to End Lupus Now
Start Date: 9/23/2013 All Day
End Date: 9/23/2013
Entry Description

Secretary Lawson serves as Honorary Chairwoman for the October 12 event at Fort Harrison State Park

 

INDIANAPOLIS (September 23, 2013) – Secretary of State Connie Lawson is encouraging all Hoosiers to join the 2013 Walk to End Lupus Now. The Indiana Chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America selected Secretary Lawson to serve as honorary chairwoman for this year’s walk to increase awareness and rally public support for those who suffer from its brutal impact. Walk to End Lupus Now events are conducted nationwide by the Lupus Foundation of America. Each year, thousands of people across the country join forces and walk with one unified purpose – to end lupus.

“I’ve seen first-hand the devastating effects lupus has on patients and families,” said Secretary Lawson. “I have several family members suffering from this debilitating disease about which little is known. As chair of the Walk to End Lupus Now, my goal is to make more Hoosiers families aware of lupus and to shine a light on the incredible work the Lupus Foundation of America is doing in Indiana and across the country.”

The Walk to End Lupus Now will take place on Saturday, October 12 at Fort Harrison State Park. This event is a half-day of fun, food and friendship with activities for the whole family to enjoy. Hoosiers are invited to sign up for the 1 mile walk or 5K at www.lupusindiana.org. When registering, all participants are invited to join Secretary Lawson’s team or create their own. There are no registration fees; however, individuals and teams are encouraged to gather donations that may be made online at www.lupusindiana.org. Check-in for the walk begins at 9:30 a.m. and the walk starts at 11:00 a.m.

 

All proceeds from the event benefit the Indiana Chapter of The Lupus Foundation of America, which is part of a national force devoted to solving the cruel mystery of lupus while providing caring support to those who suffer from its brutal impact. They work with local health professionals and volunteers to provide information and programs to provide answers to people with lupus and their families. They rally support for those who are affected by lupus and advocate on their behalf. In addition, they raise money to support research and education programs so those affected by lupus can have an improved quality of life. For more information, visit www.lupusindiana.org or call 800.948.8806.
