Georgia Lupus Walks

The health and safety of the lupus community is our top priority, and we believe that we must do our part to minimize the risk to people with lupus, our families and communities. Therefore, the Lupus Foundation of America, Georgia Chapter has made the decision to postpone our 2020 Walk to End Lupus Now events scheduled for April 25, and May 16, 2020. This is consistent with new CDC guidelines, which recommend:

  • Postponing events of 50 people or more,
  • Cancelling events for 10 people or more for organizations that serve people who are at higher risk.

We are working with these cities to finalize a new date in order for us to celebrate as a lupus community. We are formalizing plans and details so we can announce a new date as soon as possible. We will have more information in the coming weeks and we will be sure to keep you updated.

The power of our lupus community is strong! Your 2020 Walk to End Lupus Now page will remain open and you can continue to play your critical role in helping us end lupus. It is our hope that you will continue to fundraise and spread awareness of lupus in your community by sharing your story along with your fundraising page via email and social media.

We also encourage you to visit our website for the latest information on what people with lupus need to know about coronavirus. We will be regularly updating our website as the situation evolves.

Please reach out anytime if we can provide resources at this crucial time. As always, we appreciate your support and dedication to the Lupus Foundation of America.

I attended my first walk in Atlanta and had an amazing experience. But I wanted to play a bigger role in raising awareness and learning more about lupus, so I hosted my first walk in 2011 at a local park. I saw the potential to increase my impact in Columbus so I established The Diamond Butterflies group and also began facilitating a monthly support group in 2013. After my diagnosis, my first prayer was for God to take away all my worries and doubt about lupus and for Him to use me as he saw fit, which was to allow me this experience so that I could inspire and motivate others.
