A Message from the President & CEO
It's happened - LSI has announced our first event in 2016!
We've been working hard on our educational events - our focus is always on providing expert information on lupus-related issues. The newly announced educational events are:
These events are provided at NO COST to participants thanks in large part to funds raised through the Illinois Lupus Walks.
The 10th Annual Western Suburbs Illinois Lupus Walk is this Saturday in Naperville. Last week, we named this year's Western Suburbs Lupus Walk Ambassadors as Raven and Shantel Lauer. I'm sure their story will resonate with everyone in the lupus community. A story like the Lauer's is why we work so hard to serve the lupus community in Illinois - and the Lupus Walks make achieving our mission possible.
Thanks to everyone who has already helped make 2015 such a successful year. We hope to see you this Saturday in Naperville or on September 27, 2015 in Lincoln Park for the Chicago Lupus Walk.
As we move towards fall, the LSI's Lupus Charity Runners program is picking up steam! This year, LSI has 25 runners taking on the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on behalf of lupus. Running 26.2 miles is no small task and we can't thank this group of dedicated individuals enough for their commitment to our mission.
There's still time for runners registered for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to join Lupus Charity Runners! For more information contact Brianna Svec at (312) 542-0006.
With so many activities coming up, we certainly hope to see you at one of our Walks or Educational Events! 2016 is right around the corner and we're planning to make it another successful year for the Lupus Society of Illinois.
Together we make a difference.
