2017 Iowa Put On Purple Event

Just think of the impact we can make if we all did ONE THING to raise awareness of lupus.  We are inviting the communities in Iowa to join in and help spread awareness of this under-recognized, debilitating disease during Lupus Awareness Month.

On May 19th, thousands of people from around the country will PUT ON PURPLE in order to spread awareness of lupus. We hope that you will join us and get your family, friends, team members, and coworkers involved for this year's event!  

A few simple steps for you to take:

  • Tell your friends, family, coworkers, and employer about this Awareness Event and ask them to join in by wearing the color purple on May 19th
  • Consider organizing an office-wide or company-wide campaign. May 19th is a Friday, so many companies already have a casual Friday policy which will help make it successful
  • Wear Purple PROUDLY
  • Share your pictures with us on our Facebook Page @lupusiowa posts. Use the hashtags #POPIA & #PutOnPurple
