The inaugural East Point SoopaFitt Health Expo and Street Festival is a ground breaking event and showing how much SoopaFitt has grown in just 36 months is simply nothing short of amazing.
Lupus Matters Corporation and SoopaFitt have similar inspiring success stories of triumph. Lupus Matters Corporation holds 3 proclamations from Conyers, Cartersville, and Douglasville, Georgia; for designating the month of May as National Lupus Awareness Month to support the 1.5 million Americans who have lupus. “The ability to bring awareness to Lupus, and empower individuals to be courageous is my goal in partnering with SoopaFitt; because so many Lupies can be paralyzed with fear and embracement from the way Lupus destroys the body. These symptoms can be emotionally exhausting especially for school age children who are bullied because of scars or hair loss.” SoopaFitt has worked to combat bullying and provide support services for Lupus, HIV, Diabetes, and other disease. The goal is to get people talking about these issues and our mutual goals are to increase screening opportunities and empower the community to take actions by adopting healthy life habits.
SoopaFitt Health Expo and Street Festival will take place from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM on August 12, 2017 in East Point on Main Street:
