Hosting a lupus event in your community is a great way to spread awareness about lupus and to raise funds for the Mid-South Chapter so we can continue our mission to improve the lives of all those affected by lupus. There are several options for hosting an event in our community including third party events, independent community fundraising events, health fairs, and more!
