Put On Purple 2018 North Carolina

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

Originally started here in North Carolina, we are asking for your support of the Lupus Foundation of America by way of participation in the upcoming Put On Purple Day on Friday, May 18, 2018.

On May 18th, 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!  Check out examples from last year's Put On Purple Day.
