Lupus group supports World kidney day 2014.03.13


Lupus group supports World Kidney day 13 March 2014

 

In February I heard a discussion on our local Islamic radio station about a

Big walk being held on World kidney day. The Kidney association is very dear to my heart as my lupus is active in my kidneys as well.

I approached the Kidney association and asked if I can register as a lupus group.

I spread the word via Facebook and bbm .A lot of my family and friends were super excited to support this worthy course. I had lupus t-shirts printed and ask everyone to wear purple or green “kidney awareness colour “.
I was amazed and in total awe by the amount of interest that was shown.

Almost a 100 entries registered under the lupus group for the big walk.

The atmosphere at the event was phenomenal and everyone had so much fun.

There was a lucky draw and about 4 people of the lupus group entries won prizes.

 

I am so glad my family; friends and I could support the kidney association and in the same time raise lupus awareness.

 

Shukran/Thank you all for supporting this worthy course
