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
