NATIONAL EDUCATIONAL BUS TO BRING LUPUS AWARENESS TO RESIDENTS OF CONNECTICUT

Lupus Awareness Bus to Stop at West Hartford’s Walk to End Lupus Now, State’s Largest Lupus Awareness Event, Celebrating Its 40th Anniversary

 

WEST HARTFORD, CT – The Lupus Foundation of America, Connecticut Chapter, Inc. will be featuring the Help Us Solve the Cruel Mystery National Tour bus at their Walk to End Lupus Now event on Sunday, May 5th in West Hartford’s Blue Back Square. Registration for the event begins at 9 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m. The bus will be available from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.

            The Walk to End Lupus Now is Connecticut’s largest lupus awareness event, and this year marks their 40th anniversary. “We are extremely happy to have the National Tour bus at our Walk to End Lupus Now event,” says Corrianne Gagliardi, Director of Development and Communications, “the walk will include food trucks, a silent auction, and fun for the whole family, make sure to come out and join us!”

            “Lupus affects an estimated 17,000 people in Connecticut alone, but many people do not understand what lupus is or what it does, so it is crucial to increase awareness through events like our Walk to End Lupus Now,” Gagliardi adds, “the bus will be filled with interactive stations to learn about lupus through the experiences of people who live with the disease.”
