Individuals can also consider raising funds as a team, or within friends, families and co-workers to support this worthy cause.

With many of its members being individuals directly affected by Lupus, the Association does not charge membership fees and therefore relies substantially on fundraising events and the support of local businesses. Therefore, the Association hopes to raise funds from this event to in order to effectively carry out its objectives.

The Association is a registered charity which seeks to provide educational and emotional support to individuals affected by Lupus, and to increase public awareness about Lupus. Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body [skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body].

The Association also hosts the “Dragonflies”, which is a social youth support group for children between the ages of 5 and 16 years old who are affected by chronic illnesses.
