Walk for Lupus Now Events in April / May 2008

Morning everyone ... I think Spring has FINALLY arrived. Today and this weekend, it's supposed to go to high 70s and maybe hit 80 degrees. That makes me very happy. Walking around downtown DC during lunch yesterday was so very nice. No jacket required. I think we're all hoping the cold weather is gone for the year.

Lots to share with you today, so let me jump in.

Walk for Lupus Now

As I have mentioned before, it's now Walk season here at the LFA. Monies raised from Walk for Lupus Now Walks will support lupus research, lupus education programs, and patient and family support services. Here is a listing of upcoming Walks, taking place in April / May 2008.
Again, if there is no Walk near you, you can still help the LFA by setting up your own fund-raising page and participating in your own walk. For example, you could walk your local mall, hiking path or community park.

LFA Message Boards

As of this morning, there are 793 registered users for the LFA Message Boards. Get in on the action! Join the message boards here.

Upcoming May 2008 Webchat -- Being Newly Diagnosed with Lupus

The first of 2 May 2008 Webchats will take place Wednesday, May 14 at 3 p.m. Eastern. Dr. Don Thomas will be the guest expert on the topic: "Being Newly Diagnosed with Lupus." We're expecting a good turnout. Hope you can join us!

That's all the lupus scoop from my end. Wishing you a fantastic weekend!

Until next time, Wick
