Celebrate Lupus Awareness Month
and World Lupus Day with the
LFA, Philadelphia Tri-State Chapter!


We Are Painting the Town Purple for Lupus Awareness Month! 

We hope that you will "Band Together for Lupus" and join us in celebrating Lupus Awareness Month and World Lupus Day! We are working with our community partners to paint the town purple, read below to see what's happening in the Philadelphia Tri-State Chapter for Lupus Awareness Month!


See how our community partners are painting the town purple!

  • Come see "A Splash of Purple" at the Willow Grove Park Mall! Our partners in the Youth in the Loop for Life program at Springfield Township High School have arranged for the Mall's Fountain to be purple all throughout the month of May. Even better - all coins deposited in the fountain during Lupus Awareness Month will be donated to the Philadelphia Tri-State Chapter!   
  • Take a stroll or drive along Boat House Row on Monday evening, May 23rd to see all the homes lit up in purple!
  • The LOVE Park Fountain will be flowing purple as a fitting backdrop for our World Lupus Day Rally on Tuesday, May 24th! Stop by and join us for a beautiful day in the park to raise awareness for lupus!

Read through this email to find out what you can do to help raise awareness for lupus! Be sure to join in on our conversations on Facebook and Twitter! Every day we will be sharing a lupus fact of the day - share or retweet the fact to help educate others about lupus!
