On Saturday September 22, 2012, LocalEdge will support the local Piedmont Chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America, Inc. by serving as a Silver Sponsor of this year’s Walk for Lupus Now. The event is scheduled to take place at Festival Park on 335 Ray Avenue in Fayetteville. Registration begins at 3:30 and the Walk starts at 5:00 PM.
The half-day event will support the LFA’s mission of improving the quality of life for all people affected by this unpredictable and life-threatening disease. In addition, it will help advance the science and medicine of Lupus to find a cure.
LocalEdge Digital Sales Manager Mike Daye is looking forward to supporting this event. “Fayetteville has a rich tradition of coming together to help those in need,” said Daye. “We are delighted to be a part of such a worthwhile event and proud to be part of a community that recognizes the importance of the work done by the Lupus Foundation.”
LocalEdge will have a promotional table set up and company employees will be on-hand to support the walkers and hand out small prizes to attendees of the event.
According to the LFA, Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can affect various parts of the body, including the skin, joints, heart, lungs, blood, kidneys and brain. Approximately 1.5 million Americans, and five million people worldwide, have a form of Lupus.
