Lupus, an autoimmune disease in which the body attacks its own systems, impacts more than just the effected individual. When a loved one has Lupus, the entire family watches the struggle to make it through simple, daily tasks that most take for granted.
For my first Half Marathon, I am raising money for Team Life Without Lupus. Unfortunately, since Lupus is not one of the "popular" conditions, it does not recieve the funding necessary for extension research.
As the only lupus organization to host a team in the 2019 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon, our Team Life Without Lupus is proud to represent the lupus community in New York City, across the United States, and around the world.
Running the 2019 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon for Team Life Without Lupus offers a unique opportunity to realize a personal goal while raising vital funds for research and programs to help people with the disease.
