THE STORY:

The S.L.E. Lupus Foundation, Inc. wrote -

 

Welcome to Team Life without Lupus, the official west coast division of Team Life without Lupus.  We are honored to be an official charity of the LA Marathon and look forward to working with you to raise funds and awareness for lupus.  Our team provides athletes with an opportunity to make new friends and reach their health and fitness goals while helping others in the community.  In exchange for training and support, you help raise money towards critical patient services in the Greater Los Angeles area.  You can help families cope with this disease as we work towards a cure.  

How serious is lupus? Someone is diagnosed with lupus every 30 minutes, generally after 4-5 years of suffering from symptoms.   Lupus affects more than 1.5 million Americans.  In fact, more Americans have lupus than AIDS, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, sickle-cell anemia, or cystic fibrosis, making it one of this country's most prevalent medical problems. Ninety percent of those diagnosed with lupus are women, and the onset of the disease usually occurs during childbearing age, between the ages of l5 and 44.  African American women are three times more likely to get lupus than white women.  It is also more common among Hispanic/Latina, Asian and American Indian women. Lupus is a leading cause of kidney disease, stroke and premature cardiovascular disease in young women.  However, lupus also strikes children, men and older adults. 

 

By joining our Team Life without Lupus, you will help raise money to provide critical patient services for people with lupus throughout Southern California.

Perks for Team Life without Lupus runners include:
- personalized instruction from an expert runner;
- weekly team training runs;
- team kickoff and victory celebrations;
- and the satisfaction knowing that you’re training for a purpose— providing critical patient services for people with lupus in your community
