Hi Everyone. I'm going to Walk for Lupus here in Atlanta, April 25 using my snazzy purple walker. It's a 1.5 mile walk. My team is "Team Butterflake" !

Hi butterflake,

Yeah!! I'm so glad you can participate in the walk!!

I'm SO terribly sorry I had to edit your post. I did check with Peter (for myself, last year) and he won't allow requests for donations. If you'd like to hit the "X" button in the upper right of your post . . . you can delete your topic (it will get rid of my post too) . . and start a new topic to talk about how you are doing the walk. We had one going in years past and the members really are encouraged by it.

I'm so glad you'll be able to participate. I've never made it to one . . . but my son did a Marathon for Lupus and it was SO exciting!

Hey Rosie. No problem. I wasn't sure if it would fly or not. BTW I won't be flying during the walk smilewinkgrin I'm sure if anyone wants to know more they can figure it out. Tee Hee!  Love, Butterflake

Good for you Butterflake. Increasing public awareness is critical to finding new and better treatments for lupus. Contributions are kind fo important too. :) Whenever someone close to me dies I send a contribution to the Lupus Foundation of America rather than sending flowers. Keep up the good work.

Hey Donna:

I think it's great that you're doing this walk. I'll be with you in spirit all the way. I hope you have a good day and it doesn't tax you to much for doing it. I hope you're feeling pretty good these days and thanks for helping all of us with this Lupus Walk.
