Georgia Lupus Walks

Walk to End Lupus Now® events are conducted nationwide by the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) and its national network to raise money for lupus research, increase awareness of lupus, and rally public support for those who suffer from its brutal impact. Each year, thousands of people across the country join forces with the LFA and walk with one unified purpose--to end lupus.

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.
