2020 Walk For Lupus
Thank you to all...Our Virtual Walk for Lupus total donations raised to date is $7465.00.
Thank you Saskatchewan! Your donations will help people impacted by Lupus, an under-funded and under-recognized disease, as well as fund valuable research.
Despite the fact that over 1 in 1000 Canadians are living with lupus today, there is still much to be done in regards to research and recognition. Together, we will find a cure for Lupus!
Please enjoy this album from the Walk for Lupus 2020 featuring our Mascot Sadie the Dog and her 10 physically social distant walking friends who came together and helped make this year's Virtual Walk for Lupus a success.
Donations are still being accepted. If you are still wanting to help out, you can send your donation in through E-Transfer to: firstname.lastname@example.org

LUPUS INFORMATION KIT
A free Lupus Information Kit may be requested at our mailing address, toll free phone number or e-mail address listed below. The kit includes basic lupus and membership information, and a complimentary copy of our newsletter, "The Saskatchewan Lupine".
Lupus SK is proud to say that we are an almost entirely volunteer-run organization. That means a large portion of the funds raised go towards the goals in our mission statement, to provide support for those affected by lupus through understanding, education, public awareness and research. A small amount only, is used for administration. That also means that our volunteers are indispensable! Lupus SK would not exist without volunteers. That is why we need you to please consider joining our team as a volunteer.
New volunteers are always welcome and there are many ways to become involved. Let us know what your talents and interests are and we will find just the right spot for you. We have a lot of fun, we feel connected and the accomplishments are very worthwhile.
If you would like to join us, please contact Irene Driedger at email@example.com or 1-877-566-6123.
