BENEFITING: LUPUS RESEARCH ALLIANCE
ORGANIZER: LUPUS RESEARCH ALLIANCE
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
Dear friends and family,
I am running in the 2017 United Airlines New York City Half Marathon on behalf of one of my students and Team Life Without Lupus. I’m joining thousands of runners from across the country to raise awareness and money to further the mission of Team Life Without Lupus: to provide comprehensive support services and research funding for the lupus community.
Zasmine, a 6th grader in my class, has been living with lupus for several years. She comes in each day with a positive attitude. Throughout the month of February, Zasmine and her classmates are on a mission to raise awareness through the school. She is an inspiration to me and I am so excited to dedicate this race to her!
With your help, we will fight for a future for those who have lupus. A future where a child or adult does not have to face the uncertain times ahead after receiving a lupus diagnosis. A future where you and I will know that we had a part in making this possible.
