Lupus Night with the Chicago Red Stars Raises Lupus Awareness
Lupus Night with the Chicago Red Stars was held on Saturday, August 3, 2013 as the Red Stars took on the Seattle Reign. The team, led by Shannon Boxx, LFAI supporter and three time Olympic gold medalist, warmed up in the 2013 Walk to End Lupus Now t-shirts and seated all lupus supporters together in one section.
The Red Stars beat the Seattle Reign 3-1 in front of a sold out crowd of 3,400! Not only is that the first sellout crowd this season, it's the first sellout crowd in franchise history! We were happy to be a part of it and were grateful to increase lupus awareness at the game!
Thanks to Shannon Boxx, her teammates and the entire Red Stars organization for making lupus night such a great success!
