Crowning Lupus's 1st Annual Lupus Walk

Lucy C Laney Memorial Stadium; Augusta GA
Crowning Lupus presents our first Annual 3 Mile Lupus Walk in Augusta, GA. Lupus is a debilitating autoimmune disease that affects an estimated 1.5 million individuals, according to Lupus.org. As the numbers continue to rise for diagnosed cases, it is vital that we continue to aid efforts towards finding a cure. The walk will be held at Lucy C Laney Memorial Stadium on Saturday, May 21, 2016. The walk begins at 10:00am; onsite registration and festivities will begin at 9:00am.

Our founder, Jade Nealious, will be a 12th Year Lupus Warrior on March 15, 2016! Through her efforts and vision, she is committed to raising funding towards research, traveling Lupus support groups, and giving back to South Carolina & Georgia families that are affected by Lupus through awareness efforts. Not to mention, she was honored as the December 2013 WJBF News Channel 6’s Giving Your Best Award Recipient for “giving your best to your fellow man through your compassion for others and your commitment to the community” as well as the October 2014 Quarterly Adjuvant for A. Bevy Inc. and chosen by Aiken Standard as Nonprofit of the Week in April 2015. But it doesn’t stop there! She is a 2015 Jim Casey Community Service Award nominee for UPS and was chosen to be recognized by the CEO for her community service hours in the community under our organization out of 400,000 employees. In addition, she is responsible for creating the Brown Goes Purple initiative at UPS. Last but not least, Jade was recently inducted into Thomas Media Group’s Class of 2015 Top 40 under 40 for the South Carolina Black Pages.

As a 501(c)(3) organization, we value the support of our community through monetary donations, refreshments, volunteers, gift certificates and/or in-kind donations to ensure the success of our event for this tremendous effort to help our community. All sponsors will be announced at the opening ceremony of the walk. All Silver and Gold Sponsors will be named to our website. A percentage of the proceeds raised will be donated to Crowning Lupus 2016 Scholarships, Endowments, Crowning Wishes program, traveling Lupus Support Groups and yearly initiatives.
