Weather’s Starting to Cool Down … Why Not Take A Walk?

I can’t believe it’s already September. Where did the summer go? Hopefully you had a good summer, wherever you happen to be.

Autumn is my favorite time of year. Leaves change colors, the smell of pumpkin begins to fill the air, and the weather finally cools down. It’s perfect weather for getting outside and getting fresh air.

Experts say one of the easiest ways to get exercise is to walk, 30 minutes a day, several days a week. So why not take a walk, and help the LFA find a cure for lupus?

Walk for Lupus Now season is upon us, with walks taking place all over the country. Funds raised from Walk for Lupus Now Walks will support lupus research, education programs, and patient and family support services. You can help people with lupus in your community who need your help.

Many Walk for Lupus Now participants have lupus, or are family, friends or caregivers to someone who has lupus. People often walk "in honor" of a friend or family member who has lupus or "in memory" of someone who lost his/her battle with lupus.

See if there’s a Walk for Lupus Now walk in your community. Or one that’s close by.

If there is no Walk in your community, you can still help the LFA by setting up your own fund-raising page and participate in your own walk. For example, you could walk your local mall, hiking path or community park.

Together, we can find a cure.
