(Washington, DC) – Join the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) and the 2011 Walk for Lupus Now® Grand Marshal, Eduardo Xol from ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and register today to Walk for Lupus Now. People with lupus, their family, and friends can sign up to walk in more than 70 cities across the country to raise funds for life-saving research and education programs, while raising awareness of lupus within their communities.
As the 2011 Walk for Lupus Now Grand Marshal Eduardo Xol will serve as an ambassador of the program by raising awareness, attending a limited number of Walks, and supporting the LFA’s outreach and fundraising for the program.
“My sister has lupus and the Lupus Foundation of America was there for my family when we needed answers and support,” said Eduardo Xol, LFA’s Walk for Lupus Now Grand Marshal and designer for ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. “That’s why I’m proud to be part of the LFA’s Walk for Lupus Now, which brings families and friends together to raise awareness of this disease in their communities.”
