2022 North Carolina Walk to End Lupus Now - Celebration Day!

Walk Dat, Beat Dat

Welcome to the fundraising page for Team Walk Dat, Beat Dat!

Imagine a day when doctors can say, "There is a cure for lupus". Until that day though, there is work to be done. That's why we are taking action in the fight against lupus. Join us as we participate in the Lupus Foundation of America's Walk to End Lupus Now! in cities across the country to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.  

This year, walk wherever you are--and send posts and pics to me!  I'll be in my base in Durham, but still adding that Louisiana flavor with swag and more.

Will you join our team and help us reach our fundraising goal? You’ll be supporting the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus. You can also support by making a secure contribution on our walk page. Every single dollar counts!

But also YOUR support through checking in on our family, helping out with park dates, offering to run errands, or seeing if "today is an okay day" is enough to keep me truckin' along through this battle with no end in sight.  

Did you know?

  • Lupus is a mysterious and misunderstood autoimmune disease. It strikes without warning, affects each person differently, and has no known causes or cure.
  • Lupus symptoms can be severe and highly unpredictable and can damage any organ or tissue, from the skin or joints to the heart or kidneys.
  • While lupus can strike anyone at any time, 90% of people living with lupus are women. Women of color are at especially high risk. 
  • Lupus is hard to diagnose, but the Lupus Foundation of America is working to make life easier and more comfortable for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States. 
I was diagnosed at 29 years old, and I now have over 10 diseases/disorders/autoimmune issues, and I take up to 20 pills a day. Sometimes more. I take naps. I use heating pads and ice packs. I need support from an incredible woman with my daughter to be a Mama. It's a cruel disease that zaps the life out of you--but it won't stop me.
I'll keep dancin'. I'll keep fightin'. I'll keep us groovin' to Walk Dat, Beat Dat!

Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Join our team today and support our efforts.  

Who Dat? YOU DAT!!
